RNLI charity walker thanks Orkney for support

RNLI fundraising walker Alex Ellis-Roswell is pictured with representatives from all three lifeboats in Orkney, Angus Budge of Longhope RNLI with his dog and lifeboat mascot Hector, John Davidson of Stromness RNLI and Graham Campbell of Kirkwall RNLI.

RNLI fundraising walker Alex Ellis-Roswell – who left Orkney recently to continue his walk down the east coast of Scotland – says he would like to thank everyone in Orkney who helped him raise funds for the RNLI totalling £2869.46 during his time here.

Alex also said that he was very grateful for the many people he met along the way, provided accommodation, meals, and lifts for him, and who also stopped for a chat.

He is also grateful to NorthLink Ferries for providing him with complimentary travel on his visits to both Orkney and Shetland.
He says that once his round UK walk is completed, he hopes to return to Orkney for another visit.

It was in August 2014, that Alex left Kent to walk 9500 miles round the coast of Britain and Ireland.
