On the 1st of February 2016, ex-soldier Wayne Dixon and his dog Koda set off from the Lancashire coast with the express aim of walking the entire coastline of Britain.
He will be travelling on foot the entire distance, and is already one year into his epic journey, and he estimates he will be travelling this way for at least another two years.
He is doing this in memory of his late father John L Dixon who suffered from Bipolar disorder for many years before he sadly passed away in September 2012.
Wayne had been having a tough time since his fathers passing and has now found himself in a position to achieve a life long ambition.
Although Wayne sees this journey as a healing process for himself, he is also using this opportunity to try and raise money and seek awareness for the Mental Health charity MIND with the aim of improving not only their essential services, but also improve people’s attitudes towards the large number of people who succumb to Mental Illness and become vulnerable as a result.
One more thing, Wayne is also picking up and clearing the mountains of litter he encounters along his entire journey.
A very worthy cause worth donating too.
