A fundraiser is hoping to raise thousands of pounds for charity by sharing selfies of him in Speedos and promoting body positivity.

Kevin Leake, from Bensfleet in Essex, is modelling the notoriously tight-fitting swimwear in a bid to boost body positivity and raise £5,000 for Age UK.

At present, the prolific fundraiser and swimwear model is still waiting for his first online donation. 

Kevin has shared hundreds of photos of himself posing in Speedos over the past year as he valiantly tries to raise money for charities in the area.

Unfortunately, Kevin has only managed to raise £2 in total after hosting at least seven public fundraisers for charities across Essex this year already.

In many of his smiley selfies, Kevin can be seen modelling the Speedos from the comfort of his home.

In other snaps, he’s posing shirtless on a pebbled Southend beach, on park benches or with a trusty red Hawaiian-style shirt.

A prolific fundraiser, Kevin has already set up campaigns for Age UK, Havens Hospices, South East and Central Essex MIND, Comic Relief, HARP and the British Heart Foundation in 2021 alone.

But in total, Kevin has managed to raise just £2 from online donations despite sharing hundreds of photographs of himself modelling the swimwear. 

The one contribution came from an anonymous poster, who said: ‘Nice Speedos!’.

In many of his fundraising posts, Kevin credits ‘The Speedo Movement’ as an inspiration for his campaigning. 

‘The Speedo Movement’ was set up by two Americans, Joe and Cody, who aim to boost male body positivity by sharing pictures of themselves in swimwear.

A description on their website reads: ‘Body positivity is our mission and we’re sharing stories & content with our diverse community so all can feel confident knowing they are supported to be and wear whatever they want. 

‘We believe that swim briefs can be worn by people from all walks of life; no matter your body shape, size or composition. Be free to be yourself!’
