A Newbury Park mum is on a mission to raise thousands of pounds for Help for Heroes.
Pauline Fynn, of Heathside Close, has already raised nearly £100 with a collection at an open day at Hainault Fire Station, in New North Road, earlier this month.
She is now planning a 10 mile walk through central London taking in military monuments including HMS Belfast and the Royal Marines Memorial in October.
Pauline, 45, said she decided to start her fundraising efforts for Help for Heroes, which supports wounded servicemen and women, after the murder of Lee Rigby in Woolwich.
She said: “The military do so much for us and I just wanted to do something for them.

“I want to raise £5,000 but even if I don’t get there, every pound helps.
“I’ve done an eight-mile walk before but I thoguht there’s no pain, no gain, so you’ve got to go that extra inch to do what you can.”
