Daughter of Royal Anglian Soldier to raise awareness of Blind Veterans UK

Janine Mussett from Birmingham will be walking the length of Hadrian’s Wall to raise awareness of Blind Veterans UK.

Janine’s Dad, Joe, served with the Royal Anglian Regiment. During his service, he completed three tours of Northern Ireland.

Her Dad, Joe, lost his sight due to macular degeneration in his late 60s. He was only 71 when he died and sadly the family only found out about the support available from Blind Veterans UK a few months before.

Setting off from Carlisle on the 1st of June, the group are expecting to take six days to complete the walk and reach Newcastle. While on the walk, two poignant dates will be marked, the first anniversary of Joe’s death and the 80th anniversary of D-Day.
