A CHATTERIS teen will walk the Norfolk Coast Path wearing a brightly coloured morph suit at the end of this month.
Gap year student Leo Taylor will undertake the epic 63 mile three-day trek in support of a project that tackles poverty in Burkina Faso.
The 18 year-old will travel to Burkina Faso in April to work on a development programme for three months.
Taylor said: “My hiking expedition is a way of making sure developing countries can continue to benefit from the work of future volunteers, so it’s vital I reach my target.
“I’ve been training hard in the gym in preparation for the walk and I’m hoping everyone will give generously as a result of my effort.

“This is a unique opportunity to work alongside people from a different culture who have requested help from young UK volunteers to fight poverty and make a difference where it’s needed most.
“I’m really excited to get out there.”
