Norfolk's outgoing chief constable has signed up to a fundraising walking challenge which will see participants cover the distance from Norwich to Paris.
Simon Bailey has signed up to the Walking4Norfolk challenge which will be launched at Norwich Cathedral on Wednesday with representatives from each of the 20 charities taking part.
Mr Bailey will be joining the team from Norfolk Constabulary, which includes deputy chief constable Paul Sanford and assistant chief constable Julie Wvendth, to raise funds for Nelson's Journey.
They will each be hoping to fit in approximately five miles per day walking while off-duty, until they have jointly completed the 375-mile equivalent journey from Norwich Cathedral to the Cathedral of Notre-Dame de Paris.
James Bagge, founder of Walking4Norfolk, said: "It’s wonderful to have them on board to raise the profile of our challenge and the local charities we are spotlighting, all of whom have been seriously impacted by the events of recent months."
