On Saturday 14th November Veteran John Thomson (77) is walking for Erskine and nothing is going to stop him! Originally John, who served with Royal Signals TA, RHF and the Army Cadet Force, planned to walk from his home in Livingston to Tynecastle Park, the home of Hearts Football Club. However due to Covid restrictions he and his brother Pat will now walk to the Scottish War Blinded Linburn Centre in Wilkieston, and back home again, a total of 15 miles.
John said: “We will start our walk at the crack of dawn and are aiming to raise £5k for the Veterans of Erskine.”
