A bank worker will be pitching up outside train stations to ask commuters to dig deep for the Alzheimer’s Society.

David Rukin, who will also be trekking alongside a team across the Sahara desert later this year to raise funds, says the cause is close to his heart as a loved one of his is currently suffering from the devastating illness.

The 26-year-old analyst for Lloyds Banking Group will be at Watford Junction train station on Monday, Berkhamsted on Tuesday, Hemel Hempstead on Wednesday, August 13 and Apsley on Wednesday, August 20.

David, of Chaulden House Gardens, Hemel Hempstead, has already raised more than £2,000 through a daring abseil from the Forth Bridge in Edinburgh and a local raffle but the desert trek will be his most challenging feat to date.

He said: “It’s a very daunting thought to trek through the world’s hottest desert, particularly when you think about the long days and the heat. That said, I’m thrilled to be joining colleagues from across Lloyds Banking Group to raise money for the Alzheimer’s Society and Alzheimer Scotland to support people with dementia and their carers.”

The banking group is supporting the two charities throughout the year.
