Michael Gaunt needs your help as part of the Red Bull Can You Make It challenge.

A Barnstaple-born man wants your support to help him on his way to the trip of a lifetime.

Michael Gaunt, who studies at Cardiff University, is hoping to be selected to take part in Red Bull Can You Make It.

The challenge sees teams from across the world dropped off at different locations in Europe.

They have their money and phones taken and are given nothing but 24 cans of the energy drink and seven days to make their way to a specified point on the continent.

In order to be in with an opportunity to take part in the challenge, Michael and his team’s video entry need as many votes as possible.

Mr Gaunt said: “If we got on it, [the challenge] would be a life changing experience that will stay with us forever.

“It’s a huge opportunity for us. We would love to represent the UK in this week long challenge and we believe we have the minerals to do so.”
