A Welwyn man and his dog will tackle an eye-bulging 82-mile challenge for charity.
Geoff Rawlings and his 18-month-old labradoodle, Nyla, will attempt to walk Hadrian’s Wall for Welwyn Garden City-based charity Isabel Hospice.
He has fundraised several times for the charity, including a trek in Iceland, the Five Peaks Challenge and the Three Yorkshire Peaks last year – raising £4,000.
Geoff said: “I am heading with anticipation as we did two 14-mile walks on the south downs last week for training and found it very tough going.”
Laura Pigott, community fundraiser for the hospice, said: “Geoff loves a challenge, and we are really rooting for him on this one.
“Hopefully Nyla will keep a spring in his step, in what will be a difficult trek for him to complete.
“We wish him all the best and are grateful for his continuing support.”
