Speedo Mick: Walking Britain in his swimming trunks for charity


If you’ve watched Everton in recent years, you’ll have seen him

Speedo Mick has been a regular fixture at Everton matches in recent years, and you’ve almost certainly spotted him whether you’ve been at the stadium or watching from home.

Unsurprisingly, television cameras often find themselves turned towards the fan in his speedos during match broadcasts, and Speedo Mick is more than happy to lap up the attention.

But have you ever found yourself wondering exactly why this man would subject himself to the elements in nothing more than some swimming trunks? Well, it’s for charity, and attending football matches isn’t all he’s doing.

Mick is walking the length of Britain to raise money for charity, and we spoke to him about his journey so far.
