    What are some of the craziest things you've seen people do for charity?

    We often see on Comic Relief and Sport Relief incredible examples of physical endurance by people like David Walliams and other celebrities.

    What are some of the crazy fundraising ideas which go a bit beyond the traditional cake sale?

    Or have you tried any yourself?

    Personally I'll be doing a 24 hour event soon in aide of Lewy Body Society.

    One guy sat in a bath of beans. Though to be fair he's nuts for beans so I'm not sure if he did it for charity or just for fun.
