A long walk on the wild side

Andrew Terrill from Middlesex is a graphic designer, an artist and a photographer. But most of all, he likes to walk.

Terrill took graphic design in his stride at Derby University, but kept getting distracted by hills and mountains. “I’m possessed by a burning passion for beautiful places, wild weather, a challenge,” he says, describing himself not inaccurately as “enthusiastic”.

Terrill even slept rough on one trip. “Once I built myself a bed in a barn. It was snowing outside and I was cold and miserable, but at least I could go home the next day,” he says.

In May he plans to walk 7000 miles across Europe and raise 100 000 for The Passage and the Cardinal Hume Centre. Both charities help the homeless.

And he’s looking at the design industry for a sponsor.

“The walk could be used as advertising for a client of a design consultancy, for example. It would be great PR for the client,” says Terrill.
