One woman and her dog... a 5,000 mile tour

A woman and her pet golden retriever are to begin a 5,000 mile tour around Britain for charity.

Maggie Scorer, 65, and 7 year old Oscar are planning to spend six months travelling around the coastline of Britain with the aim of raising £25,000 for two charities, Leukaemia & Lymphoma Research (LLR) and Stillborn & Neonatal Deaths (SANDS).

The charities are close to her heart, because her son-in-law suffers from a type of blood cancer called Myelofibrosis, and her daughter Susan died soon after birth in 1977.
