Alan raised a fantastic £785 for Prostate Cancer UK

Speaking about the event, Alan said, "I have never done anything like this before and when I signed up, everyone had doubts (including myself) if I would go through with it. I have to say it was an amazing experience, and I met some amazing people. Seeing people of all ages taking part and going through various pain barriers to complete the 26.2 mile walk meant a massive team effort to support and push everyone to achieve. A massive thank you for all the support – there’s still time to donate should you wish."
