Taking life in his stride

Have your say

A MAN gave up his job and home on his 30th birthday to embark on a charity walk which covers the length and breadth of Britain.

Matt Wallace left behind his family, friends and his flat to start the project which sees him visiting 16 Cancer Research UK centres. The ambitious walker aims to promote the life-saving work conducted by the centres as well as raising as much money as possible for the charity. With just a rucksack and pop-up tent, he set off from John O’Groats in September and aims to reach Land’s End in mid March.

The former Nottingham Trent University press officer will walk 1,500 miles over six months, visiting the research centres and documenting his progress along the way.
