Countryside Alliance fundraiser Andrew Bruce will be embarking on a 1,255 mile walk today (Friday 16 May) to help raise money for Help for Heroes — a charity which helps badly injured servicemen returning from Iraq and Afganistan.
e is aiming to raise money for a new £5mill hydrotherapy pool and gym at Headley Court Rehabilitation Centre in Surrey. And he has already raised £32,000.

"There are a terrible amount of young soldiers who are wounded and not looked after as well as they should be — so Help for Heroes gives them additional support," he said.

"I'm staggered — I thought I'd be lucky to raise £20,000 but I'm already at £32,000 and I've only been fundraising a few days."

A list of 50 patrons will be supporting his challenge including Field Marshall The Lord Bramall, Sandy Gall, Sir Ranulph Fiennes and James Blunt.

Andrew's progress can be followed on his blog on the Help for Heroes website http://www.helpforheroes.org.uk
