AN Ilfracombe man hit the road on Saturday for a sponsored walk to Plymouth and back to raise money for injured British soldiers.

Terry Johnson, a former member of the Army Catering Corps is making the 200 mile round trip on behalf of Help for Heroes and his fund raising overall total already stands at around �1,600.

An impressive �600 of that has been collected by fellow Ilfracombe resident Andy Aylett from his family and colleagues at TDK Lambda and who joined Terry on his journey.

No stranger to charity walks, last year Andy and his collie Sasha also walked from Lands End to Hadrian's Wall.
