Salvo Fair, Knebworth, Hertfordshire UK - TIM Fitzhigham, stand-up comedian and long distance rower, is bringing the bathroom boat, in which he traversed the Channel and rowed up the Thames to London, to this years Salvo Fair to be parked outside the stand of Thomas Crapper & Co, one of his Channel-crossing sponsors. As a result of his exploits he has been feted by the media, raised loads of money for Comic Relief and Sports Relief, met the Queen and has now written a book In the Bath subtitled Conquering the Channel in a piece of Plumbing.

  2. Thanks Durgesh. By the way, around £110 was raised for Comic Relief as a result of the boat being at the fair. Another £295 was raised for Medecins Sans Frontieres from the sale of old books and wooden wine boxes, kindly gifted by V&V Reclamation of Hertford and The Wine Society of Stevenage.
