Alex Ellis-Roswell will soon be walking across the Isle of Skye in a bid to raise money for RNLI.

Alex has undertaken a challenge to walk 9,500 miles round the coast of Britain and Ireland.  Since starting from his home in Kent on 3 August 2014, Alex has raised over £33,000 and only has one more year of walking until he completes his challenge.  

Alex was recently in the Outer Hebrides as he walked the islands in January.  

Says Alex of his chosen charity: "The RNLI rescue on average 23 people at sea every single day.  In my opinion, the volunteers who give up so much of their time and put themselves at risk for others in need are heroes. They put themselves right in the thick of what is our most unforgiving environment- our sea.  They receive no government funding for their lifesaving service.  If you agree with me, that RNLI lifeboat crew members are heroes and deserve to be funded accordingly, please consider donating." 

Alex will appear on Skye after walking 26 miles from Glenfinnan to Mallaig.  To follow his progress along the way, visit his Facebook or Twitter pages.
