Welcome for Andy on his footie and Sally Army walk
9:40am Thursday 10th October 2013 in News
EVESHAM will welcome a fund-raising pensioner who is on an unusually long walk tomorrow (Friday).
Andy Peddle will visit the Salvation Army in the Leys as part of a 7,900 mile walk.
The kind hearted 71-year-old grandfather is aiming to raise £100,000 with his walk for the Salvation Army to fund the charities work with the homeless and victims of human trafficking.
So far Mr Peddle, from Buckinghamshire, has raised more than £73,000.
He began his long journey in May last year and will finish in London in November after visiting every Salvation Army centre and every football league ground in the country.
Paul Stanford, territorial envoy for the Salvation Army in Evesham, said he hopes people will support Mr Peddle when he arrives in the town. “He is raising money for the Salvation Army’s work with Homeless people and our anti trafficking programme,” he said.
“This man is unique and incredible. We will be serving a cooked breakfast when Andy arrives at the hall. The breakfast is free but we invite those who have breakfast to donate towards Andy’s projects.
“When Andy leaves Evesham he will be walking towards his next stop at Tewkesbury.”
Anyone who would like to greet Mr Peddle when he arrives in Evesham is invited to attend at 9.30am.
