A fundraiser is preparing to hop into the tattooist's chair in a bid to raise cash for a Windsor hospice.
Colin Antink, from Wokingham, will get the Thames Hospice logo tattooed on his left forearm in an attempt to raise at least £1,000.
"I'm a Minecraft fan but that didn't seem like the best idea for a tattoo, so my mum suggested I do something for the hospice and the idea evolved from there – I wanted to get something more meaningful," said the 22-year-old.
"I don't have any personal experience with the Hospice, I just think it's a brilliant charity.”
Colin, who had Stickler syndrome which causes joint, hearing and sight problems, volunteers at the Wokingham Thames Hospice shop and plans to have the inking done on his 23rd birthday on Wednesday.
