The Gold Coast’s famous ‘mower man’ is out and about once again, raising money for child protection group Bravehearts.

He will be in Southport on Tuesday afternoon.

The fit gent will turn around at Hope Island, possibly on Friday.  While he’s there he will dye his hair purple at a local hairdressing salon.  The hairdressers dared Claude to make the change in exchange for a donation.

Claude will start walking back to Tweed Heads on Saturday and should arrive home on Monday.

On this walk Claude is aiming to raise $40,000 and thinks he’s at the halfway mark.
