THE Martham grandmother of a soldier killed in Afghanistan is calling on people to take part in a sponsored walk to raise money for the Royal Anglian Benevolent Fund.

Margaret Box is calling on people to support the devoted efforts of her daughter Christine Bonner, who has organised several fundraising activities since her son and Mrs Box's grandson, Cpl Darren Bonner, died in landmine explosion in Afghanistan's dangerous Helmand province in May 2007.

Mrs Bonner's latest fundraising drive is a 150-mile trek covering five counties from Lincolnshire to Hertfordshire.

The walk will take place from August 14 to 23 and will raise money for the Royal Anglian Regiment Benevolent Fund, helping soldiers on the frontline and supporting the families of injured soldiers and bereaved.

Walkers can complete the whole course or take part in a 10 or 20 miles section.

Last year Mrs Bonner organised a 100-mile charity trek from the regiment's base in Kent to Cambridgeshire and she received a national award for her fundraising efforts in memory of son Darren, who died aged 31.
