A Wembley resident who is planning a treacherous Alcatraz swim has been awarded for charity his work.
Anil Pindoria, a Wickes Supply Chain Manager, has been rewarded for his charity work at Wickes’ Annual National Awards.
Mr Pindoria, was presented with his award by Channel 4 presenter George Clarke and Wickes’ Managing Director Simon King.
Speaking of his win, he said: “I'm not really the athletic type and was seriously overweight before I did my first event in 2011, which is why I usually get a big reaction every time I do an event.
"The thing I am most proud of besides raising money is encouraging others to do things they wouldn’t usually do.”
The 31-year-old fundraises for Leukaemia & Lymphoma Research, and has cycled across the Himalayas from Tibet to Kathmandu via Everest Base Camp and from Blackpool to Paris for the charity, as well as taking part in the Ealing Half Marathon.
He has other challenges planned for this year, including a swim from Alcatraz Island to San Francisco Bay this August.
