IAN WEST HAS WALKED THE COASTLINE OF MAINLAND BRITAIN IN AID OF GUIDE DOGS FOR THE BLIND

 

The Skegness Standard reports:

 

Almost nine months after he set off from Skegness to walk the coastline of Great Britain for charity, Nottingham’s Ian West returned to the resort, completing his epic journey.

Ian, 64, took on the challenge in aid of The Guide Dogs for the Blind Association.

 

He set off on October 24, planning to cover 7,000 miles. However, due to many places being unsafe to walk and access, the total was closer to (a still impressive) 4,000 miles.

The effort has to date raised more than £5,000, but money is still coming in via Ian’s JustGiving page (find it at www.justgiving.com/fundraising/banjo7k).
 

Welcoming him back to Skegness last weekend was The Mayor of Skegness, Coun Mark Dannatt, the resort’s mascot, the Jolly Fisherman, and members of the Skegness branch of the Guide Dogs charity.

 

 

Continuing his history of events to raise money for charity, Ian is now walking the coastline of mainland Britain to raise money for Guide Dogs for the Blind.  He started at Skegness on 24th October 2018 and expects that the whole walk will take him ten months.

 

Ian has already sent his first newsletters and photographs which are below.
