Living With Deadly Spiders for Disadvantaged Children

Real life Spider Man Nick Le Souef will be incarcerating himself in his Flinders Lane shop

window with over 1000 of deadly spiders from 15 November – 6 December to raise funds for

Variety the children’s charity. 

The renowned opal miner is attempting to break his own record set 30 years ago this year. Nick

will live, sleep and eat with the creepy crawlies ranging from deadly red backs and bird eating

spiders to common huntsman. Well known football identity Peter ‘Spida’ Everitt will be on hand

to lend his support as Nick begins his 3 week endurance test at 12.30pm on Monday 15

November. 

“After being involved with the famous Bash and seeing the great work Variety do with special

needs children across Australia I couldn’t think of a better charity to put my life on the line for”,

joked Nick. 

With a family history of adventure, Nick currently holds the Australian Records of habitation in

a Snake pit (3 weeks), a Shark tank (3 weeks) and a Red Back (Black Widow) Spider cage (3

weeks). There was even an appearance on the US Television show "That's Incredible". Nick has

been busy catching spiders for the event, with over 250 caught so far. Nick encourages the

public who may have a spider infestation in their home to contact Lightning Ridge Opals so he

can collect the spiders for his record attempt.

Several major sponsors are already on board with Budget Car Rental pledging $100 a day

toward the spine chilling venture. Those wanting to support Nick and Variety the children’s
