He was touched by the association after hearing about a brave brother and sister born with complex disabilities.

Charlie, three, and Mia Clucas, four, who are in care at the Sense Family Center in Peterborough, will likely never speak or walk and will need 24-hour care throughout their lives.

He said: “The weekend has been exhausting, there were some points I really had to dig into – the support of the people who donated and the thinking about the cause really helped me get through it!

“Balancing these crazy challenges with everyday life is very demanding, but it’s worth it for such an amazing charity that is doing such a wonderful job. There are many families like the Clucas who really need our support – any donation to Sense would be greatly appreciated.

The effects of the pandemic are still being felt in the people Sense supports.

Isolation and loneliness have increased dramatically among people with disabilities over the past 12 months, with almost two-thirds (61 percent) now experiencing “chronic loneliness”. During the same period, two in five people with disabilities (41%) say they have not been supported by their local community.

Rob’s support for the charity extended to helping the charity open nine new charity shops in Wales, with plans to eventually acquire 20 in total, generating vital income for charity.

To date, Rob has performed a James Bond parachute jump, spent a grueling weekend with the SAS in the Brecon Beacons, completed a six hour bike ride, ran a 26 mile marathon around Colwyn Bay, lowered the structure 80 meters from the Orbit Tower. and has now completed the Three Peaks Challenge, with many more grueling tests to come.
