Following media coverage about Iain Duncan Smith being challenged to live off £53 a week on BBC Radio 4's Today programme on Monday, Nathan Sparling who works for an MSP in the Scottish Parliament decided to see if he can live off that amount for a week and to get sponsorship for doing so. His chosen is charity is CAB. Nathan has said he wants to first highlight how hard it is to live on a low income, even if just for a week, and second the work of the CAB service in Scotland. He is choosing to do it whilst he is on annual leave week beginning 8 April and he has a fundraising target of £200. If you are interested in finding out more, you can view his JustGiving page here.
