FATHER and son duo Jon and Josh Sinclair spent their half term holidays walking the entire 86-mile length of Hadrian's Wall - all in support of the North East Autism Society.

The pair, who live in Washington, Tyne and Wear, completed the journey from Wallsend to Bowness, in Cumbria, in just five days and described the challenge as "long, but enjoyable".

Speaking after the walk, Jon, 40, said: "It was an amazing experience from start to finish, hard going on the last day, knowing that it was the longest day of walking.

"We met some remarkable people on the journey, and really feel like we have achieved something the we can look back on and be proud of too."

While Josh, 17, added: "It was a long week, but worth every moment, the best part being day 3, walking to sycamore gap, as the scenery was outstanding"

Josh, who is planning to enlist in the military later this year, was the one who selected NEAS as the charity to benefit from their challenge, after doing some research online.

The teenager, who is autistic but has no formal diagnosis, found out about the work we do after researching available support in the North-east.

If you fancy following in Jon and Josh's footsteps, we have a range of events running throughout the year. Find out more by clicking here.
