The event is in aid of Crohn’s and Colitis UK and is being organised by Yate-based QVC presenter and business owner James Murden.

"As a Crohn's Disease sufferer myself, I know how much of a difficult condition it is to live with,” said James. “People are often embarrassed to talk about it, I'm hoping we can raise lots of money for the charity that have supported my since my diagnosis six years ago.”
