Charity walker Bobby Campbell marked an important milestone on Thursday, April 14 - hitting a six figure mile mark after four decades of fundraising.

He said: “I have now reached 103,000 miles in total for all the walks I’ve done over the past four decades.”

Bobby, who has had both his hips replaced, had thought he may have to give up his charity walks when he injured himself two years ago. He said:”It’s a poignant day because I’ve now walked 3000 since I got injured.”

Bobby is currently using his daily walks to raise money for Save the Children and reached the 2000th mile mark for the cause on the same day.

He is aiming to complete his walk on July 9 - with a target of £3000 set and 380 more miles to cover. With under three months to go, he is only £800 off his monetary target, with the sale of a collection of trains at Taylor’s Auction house earlier this year achieving £120 and bring his total to £2200.

Save the Children committee members Corinna Gow and Isobel Luke met Bobby at the Edzell Arch, to mark him reaching the 2000 mark in his current walk.
