Danny's challenge features in the press today

It’s now just three days until Wimbledon supporter Danny Wiggins takes on his hero Haydon the Womble and it’s a Sports Relief challenge that has received press attention in the Wimbledon Guardian.

Danny, who attends High Path Community Resource Centre, which provides day care for people with learning disabilities, is aiming to raise funds for Sports Relief by racing against AFC Wimbledon’s much-loved mascot.

The sporting challenge set for the pair is for them to race from opposing goalmouths and be the first to kick the ball from the centre spot.

Danny Wiggins has already got a trial run out of the way in a respectable time of 26.8 seconds and on Saturday at half-time of the Cheltenham match it will be the real thing as he runs in front of thousands of fellow Dons fans.

His father Tony said: “Danny is very excited about racing against his friend Haydon the Womble in front of a big Wimbledon crowd on Saturday.”
