Terry, who suffers from a heart condition himself, is hoping to complete as many miles as possible through the day, with volunteers from the charity on hand to collect donations.

The rowing machine he will be using has been loaned by Barnstaple Fire Station, but Terry will be training for the event using the facilities at Ilfracombe’s station.
