A LYMM businessman and his team successfully walked 100 km in 24 hours in memory of his late brother.

Simon Plumb and the team raised more than £2,000 for Oxfam in their quest to complete the Trailwalker Challenge near Brighton.

Walking in memory of his brother Nigel, a huge Liverpool fan, the You’ll Never Walk Alone Team consisted of Simon, his son Ben, Nigel’s son Sam and fitness guru Kasia.

Simon said: "We plan annual challenges in Nigel’s memory, who sadly died aged 48, but this has to be one of the toughest we have ever faced.

"Our support crew of six family members, worked all day and through the night, meeting us at the checkpoints and we could not have done this without their unstinting support.

"I am delighted to say our feet are recovering and the blisters are gradually disappearing!

"I would also like to thank all our sponsors who had the faith in us to complete this tough, physical and mental challenge."
