Derbyshire High Sheriff David Coleman is gearing up to trek more than 200 miles during a six-week quest to raise funds for local charities.

David, 61, will walk approximately 220 miles around the county boundary of Derbyshire, to raise money for the Peak District Mountain 
Rescue and the High Sherrif’s fund.

David said of his 
forthcoming venture: “I am born and bred in 
Derbyshire, and really want to put 
something back into the community.

“I see this walk as one way of getting people together to celebrate the greatness of Derbyshire whilst helping raise money for some very 
worthwhile causes”.

David, who was previously the Chief Constable of 
Derbyshire, was brought up in 
Ripley, educated in Swanwick and now lives in Ironville.

The walk kicks off from Codnor Park Reservoir in Ironville on Friday, August 1, and will take place over six weeks in 16 day-long stages, ending back where it started on Sunday, September 7.

David is encouraging 
everyone to join the him on the walk. Anyone can join him for all or part of the walk, even for just a few yards.
