A FAMILIAR face in Worcester's city centre is getting revved up for a unique 3,000-mile charity challenge.

Martin Clews, who works as a street ranger for Worcester BID, is hoping to visit 93 football grounds in the space of 93 hours.

Mr Clews, aged 53, will be ferried between the grounds by fellow members of the Citroen DS3GB Owners Club.

The challenge starts at the Parc des Princes, the home of Paris Saint-Germain, and finishes at Arsenal's Emirates Stadium.

He will visit all of the 92 Football League and Premier League grounds (plus PSG's stadium) to raise cash for Great Ormond Street Hospital, where a club member's son is being treated for a rare illness.

Seventeen-month-old Jensen Norris has Sturge-Weber Syndrome and Mr Clews said he wanted to show his appreciation for the hospital's fantastic work and raise money and awareness for the condition.

Mr Clews, who has worked as a street ranger since June 2013, said: "I'm not sure where the idea came from but I always have these fanciful ideas.

"I'm going to be doing it all and then some of the members are going to be ferrying me around between the grounds.

"When I told Lee and Nicola [Jensen's parents] they loved the idea.

"It's really stressful and they never know when Jensen's going to have a fit and have to go straight back into hospital."

Nicola said: "Martin is just one in a million.

"When he told us what about the 93 grounds challenge I just said 'oh my God, that's so nice'.

"We didn't expect it at all but they've all been so supportive."

Sturge-Weber is caused by a port wine stain on the scalp which affects the brain.

This can lead to glaucoma, developmental delays and epilepsy.

The challenge starts on the morning of Sunday, April 19 and Mr Clews said it will hopefully have been completed by "tea-time" on Wednesday 22.

After travelling back to England from France, the epic journey will take a clockwise route around the country to visit all the grounds.

Anyone who wishes to donate should send a text message to 70070 with DSGB93 then the amount eg DSGB93 £5.

The owners club will be sharing live updates of the challenge on Twitter @ds3gboc or on the DS3GB Owner Club page on Facebook.
