Dare #5 Poshboy!

I received a mysterious email yesterday.

I have included it, in its entirety below. This will be my dare #5.  I will be doing this dare on Monday 3rd May in Cheltenham town centre at 12 noon. If anyone wants to join me I will see you there.



Dear DareBoy

Have u got the courage to wear my shirt
Take a stroll round Cheltenham Town
Risk the citizens wrath while throwing their dirt
Even when the shout what a clown

Your dare should u wish to accept it is to wear my shirt uncovered, no jumpers, jackets, cardies, badges or other devious obstructions, together with pants and shoes of your choice, round Cheltenham shopping centre on Saturday 1st May 2010. You must start at WH Smiths in the High street at 12.00pm ( my spy can only do then) and walk round and into shops wearing just my shirt, taking self photos for your website every 15mins. You must do it for a minimum of I hour (that’s 60mins exactly) up to a maximum of 3 hours. You will receive my shirt tomorrow in the office!

If you survive I will donate £50 per hour. That’s significantly more than the minimum wage ( that the tories oppose) about the same for their reactionary “family tax credit” if all 3 hours are taken.

So the real question is are you really a DareBoy or just an old fashion ToryBoy?




Coming soon: DareBoy goes all pink!

If you are lucky enough to be skiing in Tignes in the French Alps this weekend then keep an eye for DareBoy. A big thankyou to www.realdealcostumes.co.uk for donating the costume that will be worn for my next dare.  The reason we chose the Pink Panther dare was because David Niven – who appeared in the film – died from Motor Neurone Disease.

Video to follow early next week.


Where is DareBoy?

As you may have noticed, there has been a slight hiatus over the past 2 weeks, whilst DareBoy recovers from minor surgery. Don’t worry, new dares are on their way soon. Also, DareBoy is going skiing on the 28th January, so if you have any ideas for some snowy dares please add them as a comment to this post.

DareBoy T-Shirt

Due to popular demand we are going to produce a limited number of DareBoy T-shirts.

If you would like a  DareBoy T-Shirt please add your order as a comment to this post – including the quantity your require and size.

We are still working out the commercials with a T-Shirt supplier – so that we make sure the maximum amount of money as possible goes to the MNDA – and it would help our negotiations if we had a better idea of order quantities.

We expect them to cost in the region of £15-£20.



PS a special thanks to Jon at www.oomphdesign.co.uk for designing such a great logo for me.


DareBoy gets some press!

Thanks to my fantastic wife and her PR skills, and the team at the MNDA we managed to get coverage in the Gloucestershire Echo today (and we’re currently on the home page of their website!). Here’s the link to the DareBoy story . It’s rather good.

Dare #1: Eat a dead worm

Thanks to a very kind donation from Mike Hart and family, I have started my campaign to raise £5000 for the Motor Neurone Disease Association, by eating a dead worm!
