Walk for Ashley Clarkson gathers pace

THE father of a soldier who died recently has spoken about a planned sponsored walk to be held in his honour.

Wayne Clarkson, along with his family and friends are busy arranging a 16-mile walk between Crich and Mansfield in July to raise money and awareness for post traumatic stress disorder.

Wayne’s 23-year-old son Ashley Clarkson took his own life in March having been diagnosed with the illness.
