One Man and his Dog Walk Offa's Dyke Path for Charity

23rd May 2016

One man and his dog are setting out on Saturday, May 21, to walk Offa’s Dyke to raise money for a Chester charity.

Christian Wright, 27, from Holywell and his black Labrador George, 20 months, are hoping to raise the money for Vision Support, a charity which has been in existence for 140 years.

They hope to raise over £1,000 in sponsorship to help the charity continue to provide services and support to people who are blind and partially sighted across Cheshire and North Wales.

Offa’s Dyke path runs from Chepstow to Prestatyn and is 177 miles long. Christian and George are aiming to complete the walk in 10 days arriving home on Monday, May 30.

They will be walking an average of 17 miles a day, camping out each night and carrying all their supplies with them.

Christian said: “I have chosen to support Vision Support as it is a Chester based charity which operates on both sides of the England/Wales border so Offa’s Dyke seemed a fitting way to celebrate their 140th anniversary and support the essential services they provide.”

To follow their progress throughout the week and check when they will cross the finishing line in Prestatyn follow @blacklabgeorge on Twitter.
