A woman from St Neots is walking more than 800 miles to raise money for a mental health charity.
Tracy Honeywell, 58, from Eynesbury in St Neots is aiming to walk 874 miles to raise money for Mental Health Charity, CPSL Mind.
The walk equivalates from Lands' End in the south coast of England to John o' Groats at the top of Scotland.
Tracy shared her inspiration behind the walk, she said: “I started my challenge on September 13 and walk everyday, I walk about 20 miles a day and I work full time, I work it around my work.
"I have heard that many people have suffered with their mental health during the Covid-19 pandemic and I wanted to support CPSL Mind and the wonderful work they do.
“I am aiming to raise £500 for Mind, so far I have raised £180 and have a Facebook donation page set up.
“We will also be holding a raffle and will be selling raffle tickets over the next eight weeks and you can buy tickets from The Hyde Park pub in St Neots."
