INTREPID Stafford walker Graham Russell has visited Africa to see the fruits of his efforts after completing a marathon walk to work.
Mr Russell, aged 50, walked 26 miles from his home in Bideford Avenue, Baswich, to his office in Birmingham to raise money for a poor community in Liberia.
Together with colleagues from the Better Regulation Delivery Office and friends from Wildwood Church, who did walks of their own, he reached the £5,500 fund-raising target to buy a pick-up truck for the Liberian church community they are supporting.
And Mr Russell has just returned from a trip to Liberia to hand over the money.
As a result, Bishop William Barnard, of the Liberian church, has bought a pick-up truck to serve his local community in and around Monrovia.
"Working together, with lots of people, we have been able to do something special for a small community in one of the world's poorest countries," Mr Russell said.
