LIVING and breathing canal life for up to eight days will be a challenge taken on by two young men aiming to raise £500 for the air ambulance.

Courtney Higham and Joe Johnson, both 27, will be walking 110 miles from Braunston to Oxford along the canal.

They will set off on Monday, it could take them up to eight days and they will be camping along the way.

Courtney, from Barby, said: “We’ve never done anything like this before and we’re looking forward to it. We wanted to raise money for the air ambulance because it runs on charity donations.”
