TWO Ilfracombe men will be hitting the road again this April to raise money for injured servicemen by walking from the town to Plymouth.
Terry Johnson and Ronald Powesland completed the 200-mile plus round trip last year on behalf of the Wessex 4X4 Response Association, of which Terry is a member.
This year the former member of the Army Catering Corps is keen to help another cause close to his heart and is seeking as much help and sponsorship as possible from the people and businesses of North Devon.
Along with donations for the charity, Terry and Ronald would like to hear from anyone who wishes to join them on their walk, which will set off from the Landmark Theatre in Ilfracombe on Saturday, April 10.
