Birthday boy clocks up the miles

A 72-YEAR-OLD man has celebrated his birthday by walking more than 300 miles for charity.

John Dodd, from Northumberland, started his 600-mile journey on his birthday on Saturday March 11 in Brooklands, a motor racing circuit in Surrey, in memory of actor James Robertson Justice, who once featured on the track.

John has raised more than £500 so far for four charities close to his heart: the Children’s Hospice Association Scotland, Headway, Age Concern and Meningitis Now. John has been a film fanatic since the age of 14 and has worked as an extra on a number of films including Four Weddings and a Funeral, Around the World in 80 Days and TV series Minder.
