Since leaving Minnis Bay in Kent nearly two years ago he has raised in excess of £20,000 for the RNLI.Alexander says has been astounded by the generosity of the communities he has met on this fundraising walk, in particular since he has arrived in Donegal.He recently left Arranmore and spent the last two ways making his way through the Rosses and Gaoth Dobhair before travelling to Tory Island this evening (Wed).Alexander was met and welcomed on the pier by the King of Tory Patsy Dan Rodgers and hopes to spend the next few days exploring Tory Island before returning to the mainland and heading towards Malin Head. He wouldlike to thank all the people who have offered him support on his journey, especially Turasmara and Tory Hostel for making his much anticipated visit to Tory Island a reality.Tory IslandMAN WHO WALKED 4,650 MILES AROUND COASTLINE ARRIVES ON TORY was last modified: June 29th, 2016 by StephenShare this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window) Tags:Alexander Ellis RoswelldonegalRNLITory Islandlast_img
