A trio of sponsored walkers is appealing for a back-up vehicle to help take the strain when they embark on their feat next month.

Keith Broom, 61, Andreas Yiasimi, 53, and Samantha Gray, 22, will be trekking 66 miles from Sandringham House back to the Royal British Legion's Halsey House care home on August 3,4 and 5.

They will be walking 22 miles a day and need a vehicle large enough to transport them home to Cromer each evening, and to carry all their kit.

The three are raising money for the home's amenities fund which pays for trips, treats and outings.

But, at present, the most urgent need was for a new minibus, costing at least £50,000, to replace the current one which repeatedly broke down, according to Mr Broom, a volunteer at the home.

The minibus fund got off to a £426 start with a strawberries and Pimm's event at the Norwich Road home earlier this month.

Future fundraisers include Halsey House's fete on August 10.
