IPSWICH: A butcher will be living on just £1 a day for five days as part of a charity challenge highlighting extreme poverty.
Jamie Willows, of The Artisan Butcher in Ipswich, is taking part in the Action Against Hunger challenge ‘Live Below the Line’ from April 29 to May 3.
It involves spending no more than £1 a day on food and drink.
Mr Willows, 32, said: “For five days I will be feeding myself for just £1 a day - the amount that people living in extreme poverty currently meet all their needs with.
