Sir Ian Botham is launching Beefy's Big Welsh Walk to raise money for the NSPCC

Sir Ian Botham will take in the sights of the Wales Coast Path as part of his latest charity walk.

The cricket legend is launching a new fundraising feat, 'Beefy's Big Welsh Walk,' at the Vale Resort with the help of fellow sportsmen Matthew Maynard and Gareth Edwards.

The launch marks the launch of the NSPCC Wales Appeal, which aims to raise £3million over three years to provide support and help to the most vulnerable children and young people in Wales.

Over three days in August, Sir Ian will walk parts of the Wales Coast Path, starting in Burry Port on 6th August and finishing in Cardiff Bay on 8th August, in a bid to raise £100,000.
