On completing the challenge, Ian said, “This is probably the hardest challenge I’ve ever undertaken…yet! Day 6 was particularly difficult with the aches and pains really setting in but the thought of the generous charity donations kept me going when I needed it the most.

“I’m delighted to have raised so much for Heart Research UK and would like to thank everyone who has kindly donated so far.”
