Burnham-On-Sea teenager plans 22 mile walk in aid of Help For Heroes

A Burnham-On-Sea teenager is seeking sponsors for a 22 mile walk in aid of Help For Heroes.

Frank Parker, 16, is preparing for the sponsored trek from the seafront in Burnham-On-Sea to Cheddar Reservoir and back on Saturday August 25th.

"I hope to do the 22 mile route in under 12 hours with several other supporters and hope to raise as much money as possible," he told

"Help For Heroes does such brilliant work for all those wounded in combat. The event is being held to raise money for soldiers' rehabilitation, services and facilities."

Frank, pictured, will be handing out sponsorship forms while selling the charity's wristbands in Burnham town centre and town supermarkets during the coming weeks.

He hopes to raise several hundred pounds for the charity and has already raised £80 by selling Help for Heroes wristbands at Highbridge's King Alfred School, where he just finished his school year.
To take part in next month's walk, call Frank on 07585 397146 or email him here.
