Christine Nuthall wanted to do something special in her 70th year, so accompanied by Paddington Bear, she is walking the 100 miles from Westminster Abbey to Battle Abbey following the route Harold took to what became known as The Battle of Hastings.
The purpose of the walk is to raise funds for ‘Action Medical Research’, a charity (whose mascot is Paddington Bear) which gives grants to a variety of medical research projects, for example a vaccine against polio.
Christine started her walk on Sunday April 18th and hopes to complete it in about 19 days.
And to save hotel expenses her husband Norman, a qualified vet, will meet her at the end of each day in his motorhome, at caravan sites along the way.

For more than 60 years we’ve been saving and changing children’s lives through medical research and have spent over £110m funding some amazing breakthroughs.
The charity has more than £11m currently invested in the work of more than 230 top researchers, working on over 75 projects across the UK.
