A HEADTEACHER has walked the length of Hadrian’s Wall in memory of his father-in-law.
Richard Cano, who began his challenge on Monday, completed the 87-mile trek in five days.
The headteacher at Purwell Primary School, Hitchin, started his journey on the east coast in Newcastle upon Tyne, finishing in the village of Boweness-on-Solway on the west coast.
“I was due to do the challenge over Easter, but, unfortunately, I lost my father-in-law to bowel cancer,” he said.
“This has made me more determined than ever to complete this challenge. Too many people lose loved ones to cancer at a young, early age.”
Pupils and teachers at the school, who learned about the fundraising plans at a special assembly, have all been offering their support.
