Further to today's news that Britain is sweltering in a heat wave, it can be revealed that Brian Thomas (38) from Mid Glamorgan is slightly warmer than most, for the man is being sponsored to wear a Wet Suit over the summer month of August to raise money for hedgehogs.
Speaking from his flat in Wales, the sweaty man, who has lost 4 stone in the past three weeks said: "Well, Mate, like all things, it seemed like a good idea at the time, but now I am not so sure. I mean, I have lost all of this weight, and what do I have to show for it? I will have raised nearly £3,000 for the Hedgehog fund, but will the spiky beasties know, or even thank me for it? No, all I wanted was a bit of recognition for what I do, but even that is not forthcoming."
