So spending just £1 per day really does not seem very much at all.”The only ‘free’ sustenance during the week will be water.Mr Clark added: “This is going to be a difficult 7 days. We are going to have to do a lot of preparation so we can budget for the week and know what we are going to be cooking and eating each day.”The pair have set up a fundraising page on JustGiving.
