A 70-year old man is heading to Northumberland as part of an 18-month sponsored walk across the UK to raise £100,000 for The Salvation Army’s work with homeless people and victims of human trafficking.

Andy Peddle will be donning a top hat and tails as he arrives in Northumberland today and will spend nearly a week walking through Berwick-upon-Tweed, Alnwick and on south through the county.

Having started his epic journey on May 16 in the Shetland Islands, Andy is walking to 130 Salvation Army Churches (Corps), Lifehouses, charity shops and every league football club in the UK.

Andy has just turned 70 during his walkathon and hopes to raise awareness and much-needed funds to help others.
