Another update today on William Cockfield from Linda Owens (you can search this blog for the other updates, and the original post is here).
Hi, We have just met William this evening walking along Otterspool prom in Liverpool, he was asking directions and said he was meeting someone at the bottom end near Garston. It was cold and getting dark and his poor hands were freezing. I felt uneasy leaving him and couldn’t stop worrying about him when I got home. I decided to search the internet to check if his story was true as it was hard to believe that he had done all that walking by himself. I am so happy that I have found some information about him. William told me he had suffered a stroke in the past and began walking to raise awarenes and to stay independent. What a chap, walking all that way… I think he is a star. Godbless you William on your wonderful adventure. Kind regards Linda and Steve XX
