Leeds Trinity Student will walk 500 miles in memory of his great grandma

A Leeds Trinity Student is walking 500 miles from Edinburgh to Winchester in order to remember his great grandma who died last year.

Dorothy Lewis was 86 when she died and was a sufferer of Alzheimer’s.

William Kneeshaw, 20, who studies Philosophy, Ethics and Religion and has already begun his sponsored walk. He is due to finish on July 27.

He has started a Just Giving sponsorship page and has so far raised nearly £1,000 for the Alzheimer’s Society. Initially he only expected to raise £200.

We caught up with him on his journey. Watch his video here:
