Last year, big-hearted Chester man Jimmy Lea raised almost £4,000 for three local charities by completing the 100km non-stop ultra challenge walk from London to Brighton.
This year Jimmy, 56 has raised the bar and is taking on not one but three 100km walks for the same three charities: The Hospice of the Good Shepherd, Dee Banks School and The Hannah Louise Fund at The Brain Tumour Charity.
Jimmy from Vicars Cross already has the first of these three walks under his belt after completing the London to Brighton walk on May, 28-29. He was accompanied on this walk by friend Mike Reynolds from Boughton.
Jimmy’s next challenge is the London to Cambridge walk on July 2-3 where he will be joined by friend Laura Jenkins whose dad Tony ‘Spike’ Jenkins spent his last days in the Hospice of the Good Shepherd.
The final walk will be the Thames Path Challenge in September.
Jimmy said: “Thanks to everyone who has supported us and donated so far. We’ve raised almost £3000 and still have two walks to go which is amazing.
“I’d like to give a special mention to Jackie Speed at the Cherry Orchard for all her support and hard work with fund raising.”
