Jeffrey’s 85 miles for 85 years

Jeffrey Long MBE, 12th Bn PARA veteran and PRA member, is celebrating his 85th birthday in a way not many others would – with an 85 mile walk along the Leeds-Liverpool Canal.  And he’s doing it to raise money for SUPPORT OUR PARAS.

Jeffrey will set off for his solo walk unsupported, but will be joined for part of the way by the Mayor of Skipton.

This isn’t the first time Jeffrey has taken on a huge distance walk for his birthday.  Last year he walked the 84 miles of Hadrian’s Wall for his 84th birthday and he has also previously walked 625 miles from London to Lausanne,
