Traffic Paul walks for charity

GTN Managing Director Paul Hutton is planning to walk four marathons in four days, covering 105 miles through Northants, Bucks, Beds, Herts and London.

Paul, along with his wife Sarah will start the walk the day after The Radio Festival on Thursday October 21st.

They are raising money for two charities –Make-A-Wish Foundation® UK and Cancer Research UK.

Their 105 mile trek starts at Watford Gap services in on the M1 finishing at Little Venice in London on Sunday 24th, with overnight stops en route in Wolverton, Tring and Uxbridge.

Paul says: “A colleague of mine lost his seven year old son to cancer in the summer. Make-A-Wish organised a special trip to Universal Studios in Florida for him before he died, and I hope the money we raise can help grant magical wishes for other children and young people fighting life-threatening illnesses.”

Sarah, 38, lost her father to cancer three years ago. She says: “I always try to do something each year to raise money for Cancer Research UK. In past years I’ve done the Race for Life or a coffee morning, this year I’ve somehow taken on a much, much bigger challenge!”

The parents-of-three originally thought they’d walk close to the original stretch of the M1 but that became logistically impossible, so they chose the “M1 for barges” instead. But the nickname “M1 walk” stuck. Paul and Sarah have set up a [link=]website[/link] for people to follow their progress and make donations.
