Chris Lewis, and Jet the dog, came to visit and tell us all about their journey and why they are in Shetland. We had great fun speaking to them and asked lots of questions and told LOTS of stories!!!!
They are walking the coastline of the UK to raise money for, and awareness of, SSAFA. This is the charity that provides lifelong support to serving men, women and veterans from the British Armed Forces and their families or dependents. SSAFA stands for Soldiers, Sailors, Airmen and Families Association, Chris used to be a paratrooper!!!!!
So if you come across Chris and Jet on their travels, please say hi, maybe donate money to their charity (if you are able to do so) and offer them a cuppa. They love to meet new people and find out about all the different areas that they are visiting. If you’d like to follow their story then you can find them on Chris Walks the UK on facebook.
