Lewis Flanaghan of Bedworth, Warwickshire, walked LEJoG in 65 days. He wrote, It had been a dream of mine to walk the length of the country since reading Mark Moxon’s book years ago. I used the walk to raise money for Birmingham Children’s Hospital, as they saved my little cousin’s life, and I raised ₤3,550.
Unfortunately, my tent broke and terrible weather forced me to abandon my route through Glen Affric and the Western Highlands to walk hundreds of miles along roads using a road map I bought in a service station. However, I met some wonderful people along the way, and made friends for life.
