A TRAIN driver from WGC is to trek along Hadrian's Wall for charity.
Father-of-four Richard Sullivan will be undertaking the three-day hike across Northumberland next month, to raise money for Great Ormond Street Hospital (GOSH) in London.
The 44-year-old, whose son Joshua has been a patient at GOSH for a number of years, described the hospital as an "amazing place".
Richard, of Bushey Ley, said: "During Josh's outpatient visits and hospital stays, we realised how lucky he has been as there are so many more severe cases that need our help.

"This little walk pales into insignificance, but hopefully will raise much needed funds for the hospital to ease other children's suffering."
Richard, a former Sir Frederic Osborn School student, told the WHT he is looking forward to his 25-mile challenge along the wall, built in northern England by the Roman Empire to prevent raids from ancient Scottish tribes.

He is hoping to collect "as much money as possible", and has already raised �400 following a donation from FirstGroup, the parent company of his employer First Capital Connect.
"The donation from FirstGroup has given me a great start in my fundraising and that sum alone will make an amazing difference to children at the hospital," he said.
