David Walliams swam 140 miles up the River Thames for Sport Relief, raising over £1 million in the process. Does he want a medal or something?
Perhaps I’m just a cynical bastard but I can never buy into these charity events when celebrities get involved. I end up questioning their motives and questioning why we’re meant to care more because a famous person is involved!
Walliams isn’t the first person to swim up the Thames, and he was far from the first to swim across the English Channel. The celebs that climbed Mount Kilimanjaro also weren’t the first to do that. So why all the praise? Just because they’re famous?
If I earned what they did for doing the job they do then I’d gladly give up my time to do something for charity. But I don’t so I can’t. And I’m actually jealous.
