The Fylde Council Planning Officer will be joined by his 15-year-old son, Thomas, as they walk the Cotswold Way, to raise money for the Jordan Grant Memorial Fund, which is affiliated to Cardiac Risk in the Young (CRY).

Jordan, of Cottam, near Preston died in February 2012. Michael said: “Jordan Grant was a fit and active young man who had his whole life before him, when he collapsed and died from a heart irregularity whilst on his way to his first ever Saturday job.

“Up to 12 young people die every week in this country from heart defects.

“All of the money that we raise will go towards scanning young people between the ages of 14 and 35.

“Jordan’s parents, John and Lisa, having given us their full support in this quest.”

The walk will take seven days, from July 19 to 25, starting in Chipping Campden and ending at the doors to Bath Abbey.

Michael added: “We will be walking through some of the finest countryside and landscapes in England.”
