Jamie, from Ormiston, was helped along the route by his nephew Lee Wright, eight, who even mopped his brow at the end of the charity challenge.

The pair were hoping to raise as much money as possible for Help for Heroes, a services charity founded in October 2007 that aims to help soldiers and volunteers who have been wounded in conflict get the best medical care possible.
