If there is an easier way to raise money for charity than walking on 18 miles of broken glass, 56-year-old Nigel Jardine hasn't heard of it. Nigel walked an octagonal course of broken glass for 27.5 hours
, setting a new world record and raising money for the charity, Action for Children. The walk was held at the Bageecha restaurant in his home town. "I'm used to walking on broken glass but I suppose the customers at the restaurant weren't used to watching someone do it as they tucked into their meals," he said.
