Thousands Of Mobility Scooter Miles For Ex-Soldier

49 year old veteran Mark Newton has already travelled round Wales, and set the world record for the longest distance
travelled on a mobility scooter, and he keeps on going.

now tracks his journey, and with his other ventures he has covered a whopping total of 17,300.24 Miles
raising £53,032.76 so far.

His current aim around the whole country is to take photos and note every military memorial in the United Kingdom,
with the money raised going to charity.

upto 10 years to complete.
