When Chris Lewis became homeless in August 2017, he decided it was time to give back to those who had helped him.

The 38 -year-old left Swansea with PS10 to his name in a 14,000 km walking along every coastline in the UK to raise funds for SSAFA – the Armed Force-out Charity.

And he is still walk-to, along with his rescue dog Jet.

“I knew it wouldn’t be a walk in the park, but I wanted to give back, ” he said.
