Who is Bob Le Sueur?
At his 101-YEAR-OLD, Bob plans to walk 5,000 steps by the end of the month to raise money for Ukrainians who are fleeing their country as a result of the Russian invasion. “Every day was difficult”, according to Bob Le Sueur, but he was determined to get his steps in.
Bob made headlines in 2020 when he raised millions of dollars for the NHS by walking 100 lengths of his lawn, which served as an inspiration for Mr. Le Sueur to accomplish the feat.
Mr. Le Sueur said: ‘It is really difficult and it takes a lot of energy. Every day is a challenge but I am determined to do that little walk every day from my glass door to the clothesline and back.’
Bob put his life in danger while the island was under Nazi occupation to assist Russian slaves who had escaped the appalling labor conditions. He continued to live his life in service to others after receiving an MBE for his valor in World War Two.
