A 76-year-old man paid a visit to Letchworth railway station last week as part of his challenge to visit as many Multiple Sclerosis Society branches as possible this month.

Members of the North Herts Branch of the MS Society met Mike Homer – who gets around in a power chair due to a problem with his balance and starts each journey from his home in Fareham – at the station to sign his route sheet.

Mike – whose daughter Elizabeth was diagnosed with MS in 2012 – has raised almost half of his £3,000 target.
