Jeremy Goss to join Sir Ian Botham in fundraising charity walk in Norfolk
Former Norwich City star Jeremy Goss will be teaming up with cricket legend Sir Ian Botham to raise money in Norfolk for two good causes next month.
The former City midfielder is now events fundraiser for the Norfolk and Norwich Association for the Blind (NNAB), and will be joining Beefy's Big British Walk for Leukaemia and Lymphoma Research when it hits Norfolk on Thursday, April 19.
Mr Goss said: 'Ian was kind enough to support me as my guest of honour at a golf day I held at Barnham Broom as part of my testimonial year in 1993. It's great to be able to return the compliment.'
The public are being encouraged to join the walk for part of the way, and are able to raise sponsorship for the NNAB after paying the �15 entry fee, which goes to Botham's childhood leukaemia research charity.
The pair, joined by other celebrities, will be walking from Norwich city centre to Wroxham Railway Station, where members of the public are being invited to walk with them from 1pm for the final few miles along the Bure Valley Railway line to Coltishall.
Mr Botham's walk kicks off in Glasgow on Thursday, April 12, and will cover 10 cities, clocking up 150 miles before finishing in London on Saturday, April 21.
Mr Goss added: 'It will be fantastic to be walking with a true cricketing legend and I'm delighted that two such worthwhile causes can team up to work together.'
