RAF Regiment gunner’s 500-mile mission 17.05.12
‘I’m Gonna Be (500 Miles)’ was a hit song for The Proclaimers in the 80s, but for one RAF veteran, it has been the inspiration behind a fundraising challenge.
Former RAF Regiment Gunner Sean Allerton is paralysed, but he has decided to cover 500 miles in his wheelchair for charity.
He set off this week at RAF Church Fenton in Yorkshire cheered on by the singers themselves.
