AN INTREPID trio braved blisters as they completed a sponsored walk from Whitton to Brighton to help pay for a young boy's cancer treatment.
Caz Desbaux joined Tony Burgess and Margo McClure on the epic walk, which is about 55 miles as the crow flies, last Sunday (May 6).
After 16 hours on the road, they finally arrived in the seaside town, where they were able to soak their sore feet, at 9pm.
The walk raised more than £4,000 for four-year-old Connor Whipp, of Hospital Bridge Road, Whitton, who was diagnosed with neuroblastoma, a rare form of cancer, in January.
His parents are trying to raise £250,000 for a treatment only available in the US, with their appeal on course to reach £100,000 by the end of the month.
"We were all feeling it a bit the next day but it was definitely worth it," said Ms Desbaux, who lives in Alton Gardens and is the partner of Connor's grandfather Kevin Whipp.
