A FORMER Army officer who lost his right arm and leg in a landmine explosion will be joined by Colne Valley fundraisers for part of his marathon walk.
Chris Moon is doing a 1,300-mile walk from John o' Groats to Land's End to raise cash for the Leonard Cheshire disability charity.
His trek takes him through Huddersfield next Thursday.
Members of Colne Valley Lions will walk with him from Huddersfield town centre to Delph.
The route will be along Manchester Road, through Milnsbridge, Linthwaite, Slaithwaite and Marsden. Chris is expected to arrive in Huddersfield from Dewsbury at about 7.15am.
Colne Valley Lions have pledged £250 to Chris's One Walk Appeal and will also be collecting money on route.
Chris, who lives in Wiltshire, was injured while clearing landmines in Mozambique in 1995.
Since then, he has competed in dozens of marathons, including the Great Sahara Run, to raise funds for disabled charities.
His 25-day One Walk challenge began at John o' Groats in Scotland last Saturday
Chris is due to complete the trek at Land's End, Cornwall, on Tuesday June 29.
