Phil Godfrey was planning to walk from the Scillies Isles right on to Shetland. This was in memory of his wife Christine who was diagnosed with APS in 2005 and who passed away in January 2015.
Bad News – Phil has ruptured his achilles heel on his left calf and has been told by a physio not to carry on.
Undaunted here’s Phil’s latest news:
“I have now been to see a Consultant , and have been advised to take 7 weeks off for the muscle to heal and then to retrain. I plan to walk the Scillies in June and to then continue along the route, but in stages over the next 18 months”
The Orkney News has been following Phil’s walk and we will continue to keep you updated.
