A Samaritans volunteer walked all the way from Reading to Romford and has raised more than £2,600 for the charity so far.

Tony Brindley, has been a member of the customer services team at Romford station for the last 17 years, and completed a 63 mile walk over three days with all proceeds going to Havering Samaritans.

He set off from Reading Station on Saturday (December 1) and, taking the roads running parallel to the new Elizabeth Line which will open next year, he visited stations along the route arriving at Romford on Monday (December 3).

But it wasn’t over then, as he caught the train to Shenfield and walked back to Romford the following day.

Tony said: “It was a long walk, but worth it. The aim is to raise awareness of the support Samaritans give to those in distress”.
