Andy's marathon 15.1million step stroll

There's going for a stroll to stretch your legs but where Andy Peddle is concerned - there's really going for a stroll - all 7,900 miles of it! 
The 70-year-old has embarked on a mammoth charity walk to raise awareness of victims of Human Trafficking in the UK and also to raise funds for The Salvation Army’s Anti-Human Trafficking programme, and Homelessness programme.
Andy, who arrived at The Den earlier this morning as part of his momentous walk, takes up the story: "I am currently 5,126 miles into a 7,900 mile charity walk around the UK.
That is approximately 15.1million steps - not bad for a 70-year-old!
I'm walking to all of the Salvation Army centres in the UK and at each venue I sing a rousing rendition of the anthem 'You'll never walk alone'.
As a massive football fan I am also looking to call in at all 92 Premiership and Football League grounds and it was great to get a photo on the hallowed turf at The Den to help us publicise our efforts.
Please support us and donate whatever you can, however small your donation, because it all helps and also shows these vulnerable people that they most certainly don't walk alone."
