A LAGER-LOVING man is hoping to break the record for most pubs visited in one day while raising vital donations for animals in need.
Nathan Crimp, 22, has drawn up an itinerary of 75 Sussex pubs to visit in one day in a bid to break the current record of 56.
He will start at Ye Olde Black Horse in Rottingdean this Saturday morning and hopes to reach Revolution on West Street, Brighton, 13 hours later at midnight.
“I suppose my training has been for the last four years where I’ve been drinking most weekends,” he said.
“But there was actually a lot of work behind the scenes, phoning each pub ahead of time to make sure they were happy to see us.
“My friends have been very supportive.”
Nathan, from Saltdean, is hoping to raise £1,000 along the way, helped by dressing up as a life-size puppy.
He was inspired to donate the money to Dogs Trust after his beloved dog Kara died of pancreatic cancer in 2020 at the age of nine.
Nathan found Kara through Dogs Trust in Shoreham.
“She was a big part of my life,” he said.
“She passed away a few years ago and left a big hole in my heart.”
So Nathan and his friends, accompanied by an independent judge, launched the spreadsheet, planned their route, and took on the grand challenge of remembering Kara.
To break the record, Nathan must have a drink at each of the venues – although it can be a small drink and doesn’t have to be alcoholic.
“I think we start with a pint in the first few beers and then move on to something smoother and smaller for the main beers.
“I guess for the last 20 or so we can get back to the pints.”
Nathan collects money through his go fund me site, with proceeds going directly to the Dogs Trust.
