He will spend six days trekking through Transylvania to raise money for charity.
Tom is trekking from the 22 to 27 July 2018 to raise money for the breast cancer awareness charity Coppafeel.
He will be among a group of 40 to 60 fundraisers spending six days exploring the Romanian countryside, passing landmarks such as Dracula’s Castle and the Transylvanian Alps.
Coppafeel is a charity that aims to give everyone the best chance of fighting breast cancer. They travel to schools, universities, work places and festivals encouraging people to check their boobs for signs of the condition.
Tom will be following in the footsteps of his wife Giovanna who trekked across Oman for Coppafeel last year raising more than £18,000.
I’m trekking through Transylvania this summer raising money for the incredible @CoppaFeelPeople and I NEED YOUR DONATIONS! It all goes to Coppafeel so please give what you can. 🏃🏼♂️❤️ https://t.co/YdGTktEck9

The terrain on the planned route is rough and Tom claims to have “no trek experience”.
The trek is described as “challenging” on the website for Charity Challenge, who are organising the fundraising expedition.
At time of writing, Tom’s fundraising page is already a third of the way to its goal of £8,008, with the current total standing at just over £2,800.
Donations to Tom’s fundraiser can be made online.
