A heart transplant patient is walking the Norfolk coast as part of a 5,000-mile trek around Britain to help raise £100,000 for the British Heart Foundation’s (BHF) life-saving research.

Kieran Sandwell, 45, from Berkhamsted in Hertfordshire, is taking on the challenge, called Trail of Two Hearts, to mark the end of his long battle with heart disease after having a transplant eight years ago.

After setting off on February 1 from the BHF office in London, he is set to arrive in Norfolk on February 17. Along the way he will be visiting Great Yarmouth, Happisburgh, Cromer, Cley next the Sea, Burnham Market, Old Hunstanton and King’s Lynn.

He said: “The inspiration for my challenge came to me around 25 years ago, but then I would never have been able to complete such an endurance challenge.

“My second heart has enabled me to do so much.”
