Hampshire man taking on 24-hour flight simulation for charity

Clem Charity Flight

Published by Josh Kerr at 6:00am 25th May 2019.

A Hampshire man who was diagnosed with prostate cancer is taking to the virtual skies to raise money for charity.

Clem Bufrord from Lindford is flying for 24 hours in a flight simulator all in aid of the Prostate Cancer Research Centre.

As well as funds, Clem also wants to raise awareness of the condition to help others get diagnosed earlier - improving chances of survival.

On the challenge ahead, he said:

"Never heard anybody else doing it before so I thought it's a good idea, people will like it and hopefully I can raise some money.

"I've flown in the simulator for, well, the maximum was to Cyprus which was about four and a half hours - but this is something totally new."

Clem, who underwent chemotherapy, radiotherapy and hormone therapy, is urging men, particularly those who are older to get checked.

He added:

"The initial check can be a bit shocking, a bit surprising - but once you've done it you then know whether you are at risk or not.

"I didn't have my check until I was, well, the first one I had was about 55 and then I left it until I was 60."

You can follow Clem's progress via his Facebook page and donations have be given online.
