Caravan manufacturer sponsors Ian Botham walk

Posted by Freddy Morton

Sir Ian Botham may not need accessories and equipment for your van like a 12v television on his charity walk but he may appreciate the chance to put his feet up, after Swift loaned the former cricketer an Autocruise Alto motorhome to help with his charity walk for Leukaemia and Lymphoma Research.

Beefy's Great British Walk 2012 will entail walking between ten cities in Great Britain over the course of ten days, covering 150 miles in this period.

The charity walk, which begins on April 12th 2012, will start at John o' Groats and finish at Lands End.

Sir Ian said: "I will not stop walking until every child with blood cancer survives and the provision of a support vehicle for the walk…is very much appreciated."

Swift group commercial director Nick Page said the company is delighted to support the charity and wished Sir Ian well on his journey.

Ian Botham is a former captain of England's cricket team and marked up over 1,000 runs for his country.
