MARATHON SHARK FILM CHALLENGE FOR CHARITY
A SCI-FI fanatic cannot wait to get his teeth into a bizarre 24-hour challenge of watching 17 of the worst shark films his friends could think of back to back.
Arfon Jones, 39, an illustrator from Nefyn, has set himself the ‘sharkathon’ to raise money for a charity close to his heart.
All sponsorships and donations raised by Arfon’s challenge – which includes titles such as Mega Shark Versus Crocosaurus, Raiders of the Lost Shark and Shark Exorcist – will go to the Alzheimer’s Society, an organisation which has supported his family in recent months. “On 25 July, during this year’s Shark Week, I will watch the worst shark movies ever made in one 24-hour sitting,” said Arfon, who created comic strip Vincent the Vulture for the Cambrian News 20 years ago. “So why am I doing this? Alzheimer’s is a terrible condition that affected both my grandparents and so I am doing this for my grandmother Marie Julia Roberts who died this year. “Both my grandparents had to go into homes. Had they still been together this would have been their 60th year of marriage.
“I wanted to support the charity because they are not only trying to find a cure but also work with people and family affected by the condition.”
