Chepstow man's 140-mile walk was tribute to friend

A CHEPSTOW man walked around 140 miles for a cancer charity in memory of a work colleague.
Martin Polhill set off from his home in the town on September 17 on a journey to Pembroke Dock.
His aim was to raise £500 for Cancer Research because his work colleague at Mabey Bridge Mike Marsh sadly lost his battle with the disease recently, aged in his early fifties.
Mr Polhill’s route took him to Newport, Cardiff, Port Talbot, Cross Hands, Amroth and finally his end destination on September 21 where he met family members for a well-earned pint of cider.
He has easily surpassed his fundraising target and it now stands at more than £2,000.
“I am incredibly grateful to everyone for their support and donations along the way,” he said.
