RAF veteran John Wilcock zooms around his park on rollerskates and a wheeled zimmer frame - aged 89

An RAF veteran inspired by Captain Sir Tom Moore is raising money for charity by ROLLERSKATING around his garden on a wheeled zimmer frame - at the age of 89. John Wilcock has pledged to complete 90 laps of his courtyard in Warwick by doing two circuits a week for the next nine months until his 90th birthday. The retired university lecturer will have travelled an impressive 3.5 miles on his skates by the time he finishes his challenge in January next year. John kicked off his fundraiser on March 9 with the help of his wife Jeanne's roller frame with plans to raise £500 for the charity FareShare. But he smashed his initial target within a matter of days and his current total already stands at almost £6,000. This video was shot on the 27th March 2021.
