Richmond man Andrew George put on his walking boots and trekked 100km in the London 2 Brighton challenge to raise money for charity,

A trustee of the Epilepsy Society and chairman of its research committee, Andrew walked non-stop throughout the night from May 25-26.

He said: "It was fantastic to have some supportive walking companions, including someone else who was fundraising for the Epilepsy Society.

"There was a lot of companionship at the rest stations, where it was totally normal to watch each other doing running repairs on feet while taking in the calories."

Andrew completed the walk in 28 hours and 48 minutes.

He is raising money to support a research project that will contribute to the work of the Epilepsy Society in treating or preventing the disease.

The money will help fund a bioinformatician with the expertise to analyse genetic data and increase the charity's understanding of epilepsy.

Epilepsy Society is currently working on gathering data from 5000 people with epilepsy.

Andrew is hoping to raise £5,000 which is around 5p for every step that he took.

So far, he has already raised a little more than £4,700.
