Manx couple to walk length of Great Britain

Wed, 18 Sep 2019

A couple will walk the length of Great Britain to raise money and spread awareness of worldwide slavery. 

John Anderson, who owns accommodation Knockaloe Beg Farm with his wife Fiona, will trek from Land's End, the most south-westerly tip of England, to John O'Groats, on the northeastern tip of Scotland.

He will set off on the iconic 1,000-mile route on Saturday 21 September, joined two weeks later by Fiona who will offer morale and support along the way.

Fiona will also bring a campervan, which has been lent to them by friends and will act as their temporary home for the epic two-month expedition, expected to conclude on Saturday 16 November.

The couple are undertaking the 'Walk for Freedom' in support of International Justice Mission, the largest anti-slavery organisation in the world.

John has set a fundraising target of £15,000.
