    A dog lover from Boston is going on a gruelling 177 mile walk in a bid to raise money for a canine welfare charity.

    Antonio Skaboullos will trek along the length of the border between England and Wales for the Dogs Trust which annually cares for in excess of 16,000 stray or abandoned dogs through its network of 17 rehoming centres across the UK.

    Completing the challenge on his own, his route will see him walk from Sedbury Cliffs on the banks of the Severn estuary to Prestatyn on the shores of the Irish sea.

    Along the way Antonio will pass through eight different counties and cross the border between more than 20 times.

    Antonio said: "I've known for a while that I wanted to do a fundraising initiative for Dogs Trust and when I came across the walk along Offa's Dyke footpath I thought it could be a great option."
