Richard Branson to mark 60th with birthday hamper?
Published on 15/07/2010

A hamper gift could be the perfect way for Sir Richard Branson to celebrate his next birthday - especially if he completes his next adventure.

The entrepreneur has announced he is to attempt to kite-surf across the English channel to mark turning 60, the Mirror reports.

Branson, who is well-known for his daredevil challenges - such as sailing the Atlantic and attempting to fly around the globe in a hot air balloon, would become the oldest person to achieve such a feat if he is successful.

The man behind the Virgin brand said kite-surfing is one of his favourite pursuits.

"I absolutely love the amazing rush you get when going at high speeds, in high winds, with the most beautiful kite acting as your only guide," he added.

Former Star Trek actor Patrick Stewart recently claimed he is to commemorate his 70th birthday by returning to his original home town of Mirfield and attending graduation ceremonies at Huddersfield University, where he is the chancellor.
