Bishops Tawton man is rallying support to help fill Codden Hill for a North Devon cancer charity.

A Bishops Tawton man is hoping to fill Codden Hill with people to show support for a North Devon cancer charity.

Brian Hogg will start walking and cycling up and down Codden Hill for 24 hours at 11am on Saturday, June 11.

Friends and supporters will join Brian for his final walk at 10am on Sunday, June 12, to raise money and awareness for charity ChemoHero.

He said: “I like to push myself and have always wondered how many times I could do Codden Hill in a day.

“My ambition is to fill the hill and I’d love it if local people could join me for my last leg of the trip to help me achieve this aim.”

The ‘Let’s Fill the Hill’ challenge will see Brian cycle to the top of the hill and then walk back down to Bishop’s Tawton Park, before leaving on the hour, every hour, to repeat the same process.

Brian added: “I’m doing this after seeing how devastating cancer can be.

“A former colleague of mine died from breast cancer and Lisa Wallis, the founder of ChemoHero, is going through it a second time.”

Founded in North Devon, ChemoHero was originally set up to create boxes – a mix of practical and luxury items -–for women undergoing chemotherapy treatment.

ChemoHero has now started to help men with prostate cancer in the same way.

Brian is also hosting a quiz and raffle at 7.30pm on Friday, June 10, at Bishops Tawton Village Hall.

Teams of four or five can join in for £10 a team.
