"All the 4s" walk for The Royal Anglians started

Christine Bonner, the mother of Cpl Darren Bonner of 1 R ANGLIAN who was killed in Afghanistan, soldiers from the Regiment and other supporters yesterday began their 150 mile walk to raise funds for the Royal Anglian Regiment Benevolent Fund.

The walk set off from Kirton on North Lincolnshire's coast and over the next 10 days will pass through the Regiment's home counties of Lincolnshire, Leicestershire, Northamptonshire, Bedfordshire and Hertfordshire and will finish in Hertford next Sunday.

Each day they will end their day's hiking in Lincoln, Grantham (15th), Belvoir Castle (16th), Leicester (17th), Northampton (18th), Bedford (20th), Harpenden (21st) and Stevenage (22nd) and end up in Hertford Town Centre on Sun 23rd.

Donations can be made on the All the 4s website

Well done , Christine and all involved!
