TWO serving members of the British Army walking the equivalent of four marathons in four days on the Costa del Sol have announced further ways to donate.

Charity supporter Craig Dignam and his nephew Danny O’Connor will carry out the 111-mile challenge from Torrox to the top of the Rock of Gibraltar, leaving on April 17.  The walkers have set their sights on helping homeless veterans through the SSAFA Forces Help and have announced collection points throughout the length of their route.

As the two soldiers carry out their training ahead of the walk, Craig explained he has been humbled by the response from the public so far.  He told the Euro Weekly News: “I’m overwhelmed by the support given, I am so pleased to be raising money for the charity.”

He added the training is going well, explaining: “I want to do the walk now, I’m like a child in a sweet shop.” 

The pair are more than 50 per cent of the way to reaching their target of £2,000 (€2,328). Craig told the Euro Weekly News every small amount donated helps his fundraising efforts, explaining “even if it a pound or a Euro, it all soon adds up!”
