A CHARITY walker has taken less than ten days to complete a 166-mile trek.

It is the third year that Carlo Zambonini of Old North Road, Royston, has taken part in the Hertfordshire Way long-distance footpath walk, which starts and finishes in the town.

Mr Zambonini, 53, said: "I did enjoy it because the weather was good.

"I was the only one doing it this year, though, so it did get lonely."

The walk, which took Mr Zambonini through Tring, Potters Bar, and Bishop's Stortford, has raised more than £3,000 in the past three years for Cancer Research.

Staying overnight with a friend, or catching public transport back to his home in Royston, Mr Zambonini said: "There are times when it does get a bit tiring."

Next year he plans to take part in the three peaks of England, Scotland, and Wales challenge, from Royston.
