A Deeping St James man is hoping he won’t have to call on the services of a charity he will be supporting with a big challenge next year.

Keen walker Alan Bradshaw plans to walk nearly 300 miles in just 18 days without a break in support of the Lincs & Notts Air Ambulance.

Alan has already completed several long distance walks, but this will be his toughest challenge yet and the first he has undertaken in support of the Ambucopter.

He will be walking the Pennine Way, starting at Edale in Derbyshire and finishing at Kirk Yetholm in Scotland 18 days later.

And, to increase the difficulty, Alan is walking alone, with no rest days, camping and staying in bed and breakfast accommodation along the way.

He said: “With my hobby of walking, if in the unfortunate event that I, or any other walker, happens to get into serious difficulties, it could be the Lincs & Notts Air Ambulance that comes to our rescue. It is a fantastic service which I would like to support.”
