The 59-year-old, who used to work with racehorses, will leave StadiumMK on March 1 and take a route to Dover, ferry to Calais, then into Belgium, Germany, Czechia, Austria, Hungary, Serbia, Bulgaria, Turkey and finishing in Paralimni Square in Cyprus.

He will be backed up by a support vehicle and he is looking for other help with a motorhome, footwear and other items for his travels.

The distance is approximately 2,500 miles and Malcolm estimates it will take around 4 months.

Charities to benefit include Children in Need, Cancer Research, alzheimers and dementia funds, and the RSPCA. He also wants to help local charities in the countries he is walking through.
