A Grantham man is hoping to raise thousands of pounds for charity after meeting child refugees on his travels in Africa.
Sean Twomey has been travelling for six months. He hitchhiked to Morocco and there met child refugees from the Syrian conflict.
Sean said: “It affected me deeply. I have therefore promised Doctors Without Borders, a charity who are doing some amazing work with regards to this conflict, and the children affected by it, that I will walk across Croatia in one week to raise funds and awareness of this situation. I will walk from Slovenia, to Bosnia, through Croatia. The route is around 280km, and if I walk 40km a day, it should be possible.”
Sean, 23, would like to raise about £3,500. He added: “I care very much about this project and I would love to make something that helps a lot of young people that are having an extremely tough life.”
Sean will start his walk on April 10.
