Pet caring duo to walk for char­ity

The Peterborough Evening Telegraph - - Your -

TWO char­ity work­ers are pre­par­ing them­selves for a gru­elling 100k walk in a bid to raise funds for the an­i­mals in their care.

Tom O’con­nell (32) and Mark An­der­son (41) from Wood Green, The An­i­mals Char­ity, near God­manch­ester will leave from Rich­mond, on the banks of the Thames on Satur­day to walk through a mar­shalled route along foot­paths, bri­dle­ways, and na­tional trails cross­ing the North and South Downs through the night be­fore ar­riv­ing in Brighton.

Mark said: “I have com­pleted long dis­tance walks be­fore for Wood Green but they have al­ways been bro­ken down into man­age­able sec­tions. Hav­ing to walk con­tin­u­ously through day and night for what could be over 24 hours will be a real test of both men­tal and phys­i­cal strength.”

The team hope to raise £2,000 for Wood Green which will go to­wards the care of the 5,000 an­i­mals the char­ity takes in each year.
