RNRMC fundraiser, Commander Jane Allen, is back on English soil after a gruelling six months navigating the Scottish wilds.
Jane has now walked nearly 3,500 miles for the RNRMC and Women’s Royal Naval Service Benevolent Trust (WRNS BT). Travelling anti-clockwise around the coastline, she started the first leg of her solo long-distance walk in Portsmouth and is now well over halfway around the UK coastline.
On her Scottish leg, Jane has walked through the Granite City of Aberdeen, reached the peak of Scotland at John O’Groats and has been welcomed by bagpipers at HMNB Clyde in Faslane. Throughout her time in Scotland, Jane has managed to burn through an impressive four pairs of boots, while the Victory Van, driven by husband Frank, has accumulated 3,957 Scottish miles.
After a fulfilling career in the Naval Service, Jane decided that the RNRMC, the principal charity of the Navy, was an ideal choice to be one of her chosen charities. The money raised by Jane on behalf of the RNRMC will go towards supporting sailors, marines and their families, for life.
The Victory Walk will continue into 2019 with Liverpool and Wales on the near horizon.
