Blind man and dog in charity trek

A Blind man and his dog has taken part in a gruelling 270 mile charity trek.

Scott Cunningham and his dog took 16 days to complete the Pennine Way, one of Britain’s toughest long-distance walks.

The pair began their journey from Edale in Derbyshire on May 10 to raise money for the Guide Dogs for the Blind Association.

Mr Cunningham has completed a number of walks in the past and raised thousands of pounds for the charity.

‘It’s been an amazing experience. I feel a wonderful sense of achievement,’ said Mr Cunningham.
The pair were accompanied on the trek by friends from 45 Commando Royal Marines based in Arbroath.

The journey took them along the Pennine Ridge, through the Yorkshire Dales up into Northumberland and across the Cheviots.
