Thom's on the hunt for funding for his business
Television celebrity Thom Hunt has launched a campaign to promote outdoor living at a Cornish beauty spot.
Mr Hunt, from the Channel 4 television series Three Hungry Boys, wants to raise £6,000 for the 7th Rise – an idyllic retreat where guests learn to make the most out of the countryside, with a focus on wild food cooking.
Visitors to the facility, only accessible by boat next to the River Fal in South East Cornwall, are taught foraging, fishing, butchery and bush craft.
Mr Hunt, who founded the facility, will use the money to purchase a yurt enabling more people to get there.

"Making 7th Rise accessible to as many people as possible is really important to me. This year we've had some great feedback from guests – they love the experience, they love reconnecting with nature and they love the digital detox," he said.
"We feel having a yurt on site will really help us to achieve our business goals and objectives and enable us to open up the experience to many more people, without 7th Rise losing its authentic, peaceful and spacious feel."
Last year Mr Hunt and friends Tim and Trevor embarked on a journey from River Cottage in Axminster to Land's End in Cornwall over a five-week period, without any money, foraging for food en route. River Cottage managing director Rob Love said: "We have watched Thom progress into his new businesses since following him on the Three Hungry Boys challenge. 7th Rise is a fantastic outdoor space and celebrates the Cornish landscape and produce."
