An ex-serviceman travelling around Britain on a mobility scooter, accompanied by two cats, passed through north Northumberland this week.

Mark Newton, from Swansea, along with Smudge and Missy, is trundling around the entire country, including the islands, on a mammoth charity quest to raise funds for 1st The Queen’s Dragoon Guards, Help for Heroes (H4H), the Royal National Lifeboat Institution (RNLI), The Royal British Legion (RBL) and the Soldiers, Sailors, Airmen and Families Association (SSAFA).

The Queen’s Dragoon Guards and the Royal British Legion are among the beneficiaries because they obtained the scooter for Mark in December 2009. It followed a life-changing leg injury he suffered while attached to the United Nations in Cyprus in 1991.
