(SOUNDBITE) (English) RETIRED BRITISH ARMY MAJOR, MICHAEL STANLEY, SAYING:"My reward is the smiles on people's faces. They are so supportive and so generous and I'm really pleased to be able to do it. And of course, for me, I get a great, great kick out of talking to people who walk up and down the towpath. It's really, really good fun."
