A man from Berkhamsted who raised more than £11,000 for charity through a 1,100-mile walk from Lands’ End in Cornwall to John O’Groats in Scotland has thanked everyone who donated.

Nick Heath walked around 1,100 miles, and climbed a total of around 120,000 feet, in aid of The Hospice of St Francis (HoSF) in Berkhamsted, Mind and Parkinson’s UK, between May and the end of July.

Updating followers of his blog after he finished, he said: “I would like to thank everyone again for all your support – that was worth three miles a day! Walking yesterday, I left my phone on, and it started pinging away first thing with so many messages, and continued all day. 

“Thank you all, I’m humbled by all of your kind thoughts and comments. My fundraising now stands at an astonishing £11,038.04, plus Gift Aid, totalling a huge £12,784.63. 

“I have to say that I have been astounded by the generosity and by the personal support that I have received from everyone during my challenge.”
