One man is giving packed commuter trains the cold shoulder by walking from his office in the centre of London back to Chiswick.

But the long walk pales in comparison with the 200-mile trek Scott Cargill, 37, will be taking on to raise money for the Honey Rose Foundation next month.

Setting off from his mum’s house in Liverpool on March 27, Mr Cargill, originally from Merseyside, will be attempting to walk back to his home in Windmill Road, Chiswick, in time for Easter Sunday.

Over eight days Mr Cargill will need to walk an average 25 miles and will be guided on the sponsored walk by only his GPS and a Google map.

Mr Cargill said: “As part of my year as master of my Masonic Lodge I will be trying to raise money for various worthwhile causes.

“I wanted to do something that I really did not know I could achieve and as such, I have a real fear of failure.

“One night after a meeting while having a few beers with the chaps it just popped into my head - ‘go to see mum, then walk home’.

“It will be the toughest thing I’ve done but it will be a great achievement.”

All money raised by the walk will go to the Honey Rose Foundation, which organises special days for terminally-ill people aged 40 years and over.

The charity was set up by founder Lynne Duffy, who lost three friends from terminal illnesses. Mr Cargill got the idea to raise money for the good cause after his wife saw the charity featured on Channel 4’s Secret Millionaire.

Although a regular jogger on the streets of Chiswick, Mr Cargill has been getting in some extra training by walking home from his offices in the City and Paddington.

Mr Cargill added: “All I can do is prepare myself mentally and physically and hope I can raise a bit of money so that a few people get a special day before they die.”
