AN AMPUTEE walked for more than one mile across Croydon to raise money for his rehab ward.

Ian Wilkinson walked from the Travelodge, in Wellesley Road, to the Two Brewers pub, in Gloucester Road, on Sunday afternoon.

He raised more than £700 in sponsorship for the Coastal Rehab Unit at Croydon University Hospital – and hopes that figure can reach £1,000. The 58-year-old is getting used to a prosthetic after his left leg was amputated last August due to diabetes.

Ian, who is a pub quizmaster at The Two Brewers, said: "I was looking forward to the walk, but then the day before I was petrified.

"The staff at the unit love their job and want to help people get better. I am so grateful to them."
