A charity which helps veterans with psychological problems or physical injuries is set to stop in Beverley during a 4,000 mile fundraising walk to commemorate the Centenary of the First World War from Ypres in Belgium right around the coast of Britain.

The WW1-100 Challenge begins on 28 April and reaches Beverley on 14 May, raising money and public awareness about what they do along the way.

The charity is aiming to raise £3 million, £1 for every British and Commonwealth soldier killed or wounded during the Great War, money that will be used to help veterans today who are suffering the effects of war.

The VIA Walking Team will pass through over 700 villages, towns and cities en-route and will be seen by millions of people throughout the walk
