A charity shop owner wants people to join him on a walk across Wexford to raise money for cancer sufferers.

Bart Murphy of Bart's charity shops is planning to walk 40 km from New Ross to Foulksmills, Taghmon and Wexford town on Saturday, August 9.

Participants can walk, jog or run the full distance or a section of it.

Bucket collections will take place along the route.

The first 10 km will take place around New Ross with the second 10 km leg going from Foulksmills to Clongeeen and back.

The third walk will be held around Taghmon with the final leg taking place from the Maldron Hotel to Wexford town and back again.

Bart is no stranger to charity walks, having previously trekked one mile an hour every day for 52 days, a record total of 1250 miles.

Anyone who would like to take part in the walk should contact Louise on 087 9257997.
