A King’s Lynn woman is undertaking a major challenge for the East Anglian Air Ambulance.

Kerry Edmondson-Brown, 37, of Swiss Terrace, will be taking part in a 24k charity walk from Cley-next-the-sea in North Norfolk to Holkham Hall.

“I thought it would be a perfect way to raise money for charity, a great motivation to for me,” she said.

“I used to work for the police in London and I know how important air ambulances are when all you have is seconds to help someone,” she said.

“And they are just as important here in such a rural area where everything is built far apart.

“And the East Anglian Air Ambulance is trying to raise money so they can run 24/7.

“God forbid, if anyone is in an accident during the night, to be able to offer that service would be so worthwhile.”

Miss Edmondson-Brown said she was beginning her training this week for the charity walk, set to be held on Sunday, September 8.

“I have calculated that if I am able to walk from near the Tennyson Avenue railway crossing to the Sandringham Estate and back, that will be just short of 24k. 

“So, that will be my aim towards August. I need to make sure I get quite strong by putting in the training,” she said.

Miss Edmondson-Brown’s target is to raise £200. 

Prince William was paid pilot for the charity for two years,  working his final shift in 2017.
