John Bloodworth is visiting a Cramlington shop as part of his challenge.

A craft supplies shop at the Nelson Industrial Estate in Cramlington has been chosen by a man known as ‘The Gentleman Crafter’ as his port of call in Northumberland during his epic fund-raiser.

John Bloodworth aims to visit all 92 historic UK counties in a motorhome named Maisie after developing the All Counties Craft Challenge in partnership with Create and Craft TV.

He aims to raise £20,000 for mental health charity Mind and spread creativity across the nation.

The 42-year-old will be at Craftsite in Admiral Business Park next Wednesday (September 28). He will run an all-day craft workshop alongside owner Wendy Reed.

Call the shop on 01670 714466 to get event details. To sign up for it and for more information about the initiative, including donation details, visit www.createandcraft.tv/allcountieschallenge
