A football-mad father and son have set themselves a charity marathon over the Easter holidays by visiting all 92 football league clubs plus Wembley and the Millennium Stadium... and Ditchingham Maltings, the home of Bungay Town FC.

Darren Bungay and his 11-year-old son, Richard, took part in the Bungay v Bungay football match at the north Suffolk ground two years ago and are looking forward to making a return visit.

The pair, both fans of Swindon Town, plan to travel 2,800 miles to raise funds for the Teenage Cancer Trust between April 3 and April 12.

“We’re both keen football fans but my son, in particular, is a massive fan.

“He came up with the idea and he picked the charity because he saw a leaflet about it while he was having an allergy test at the doctor’s and thought it would be a good charity,” said Mr Bungay.

They started their journey at the the Kassam Stadium in Oxford and will watch at least three matches along the way.

On Monday Mr Bungay and Richard will be in East Anglia visiting Carrow Road, Norwich and Portman Road, Ipswich.

However, between the visits at the homes of Norwich City FC and Ipswich Town FC the duo will be making a short diversion to the home of Anglian Combination side Bungay Town FC.

Shaun Cole, vice-chairman of Bungay Town FC, said: “We are looking forward to meeting Darren and Richard when they make a welcome return to Bungay. They are looking to raise £2,000 for their charity and we hope the extra stop at Bungay FC will give the total a boost.”
