Andy stops in Tivvy during incredible charity walk
A REMARKABLE septuagenarian who is walking almost 8,000 miles around the length and breath of the UK for charity was given a warm welcome in Tiverton last month.
Andy Peddle, who turned 70 during his 18-month sponsored trek, called into the Salvation Army church when he visited Mid Devon.
Andy is hoping to raise £100,000 towards the national charity's work with homeless people and victims of human trafficking.
At each venue he visits, Andy is giving a talk about the plight of those who are trafficked or who have no home as well as about his journey so far. An audience of local officers, soldiers and friends of the Tiverton Army Corps also heard Andy sing the football terrace anthem "You'll Never Walk Alone'.

Andy was dressed in top hat and tails when he arrived in Tiverton on July 23 on the latest stop of an epic odyssey which began in the Shetland Islands in May.
After resting in Tiverton overnight he carried on with his trek the following day.
As well as visiting Salvation Army Corps, Andy is visiting as many charity shops as he can during the challenge, which will see him cover 7,800 miles.
