He has only gone and done it - Torbay walking hero Neil Thomas was greeted by hundreds of wellwishers and supporters as he reached the end of his incredible journey from London's Big Ben to Torquay's Little Ben.
After eight gruelling days on the road, walking 200 miles for Rowcroft Hospice and with no money in his pocket, Neil reached the Torquay Clock Tower this afternoon (Sunday).
Neil has captured the imagination and hearts of people across Torbay with his social media anecdotes from the roadside over the past week, meeting fantastic people and taking in the sights across the country.
Having set his initial target of £2,000, Neil is now almost at an astonishing £20,000 and the money keeps on coming in.
