Charity rider heading through Lawn-ceston

A VERY understanding wife and more than a little help from his friends has Western Australian mower retailer and repairer Craig Alford well on the way to raising $1 million for charities.

Mr Alford is driving a ride-on mower 15,000 kilometres around Australia, in stages, over seven years and stopped briefly in Launceston yesterday as part of the 2500 kilometre third stage, from Adelaide to Sydney via Melbourne and Canberra.

Mr Alford is raising money for men's mental health and prostate cancer research.
