Photo of Chris EvansCJE Micros gaffer Chris Evans is set to compete in a grueling triathlon to raise cash for charity. The Southwater Sprint Triathlon, which involves a 400m swim in a lake, a 18.5km bike ride and a 3.8km run, is to take place on Sunday September 4th.

Although Chris aims to complete 22.7km of the punishing course, he says he has already bagged 300 quid in sponsorship and is seeking more.

"I have been doing swimming training for some years but only started training for the Cycling and Running this year," confessed brave Chris. He says he'll split the money raised between St Barnabas and "a suitable Hospice in a 'deprived area'."

The event is to take place on Sunday 4th, and not Saturday as the article originally suggested.

  • Prototype affordable Braille display in development
    A low-cost computer-controlled Braille board has been prototyped by a RISC OS-using university student. Undergraduate Edward Rogers hopes to sell his completed units for as little as 200 quid each to schools and families to allow more blind children to continue learning Braille. And he said he wanted to launch his venture using RISC OS-powered kit before offering a package for other platforms.
