Nunney resident Owen Hillier MBE, who is 98 and a Second World War veteran, has raised £16,655 for Dorothy House by walking around his garden.
Mr Hillier walked 100 metres a day, despite his reduced eyesight, in memory of his Grandson James who was killed in a car accident in March 2007.
During the war he was a member of the air force service police for Bomber Command in Kilmington, East Devon.
The money raised will go to Dorothy House hospice care. Many Nunney residents chipped in too.
Owen Hillier’s fundraising efforts have attracted regional publicity on television and in the newspapers, including the BBC and ITV.
Dorothy House provides palliative and end of life care to patients living with a life-limiting illness, and their families and carers.
The majority of care is delivered in the home and community and covers and area of 700sq miles. All services are free of charge.
You can still donate on Owen Hillier’s Just Giving page.
