ANDY Peddle, aged 70, is taking on the remarkable journey of walking to every Salvation Army centre across the United Kingdom and Ireland and raising donations for The Salvation Army's Homeless and Anti Human Trafficking programmes. He will be visiting Penarth on September 19.
His journey, starting in the Outer Hebrides in May this year, will finish in October 2013 in London. He will have clocked up more than 7,900 miles and will have visited 949 Salvation Army centres across the UK and Ireland.
Andy said: “The Salvation Army has a long history of offering practical support to people who are vulnerable or in need. We are there for 3,500 homeless men, women and families every night.”
He will be at the Penarth Salvation Army on Thursday, September 19, at 9.30am and the Care of Share charity shop on Cornerswell Rd at 10.30am.
