When Martyn Wells reached Severn Beach on Monday, September 10 it was the end of a 211 mile journey.

His trek along the River Severn in support of Macmillan Cancer support had started nine days earlier in Plynlimon, Wales.

Martyn, who has stage 4 melanoma, had his stomach removed earlier this year. It did not stop him completing the challenge and raising more than £33,000 in the process.

"I hope I have inspired other cancer patients and their families to see that life with cancer is still a life, and that life goes on," Martyn said.

"Having a stage four cancer diagnosis should not stop you from achieving things you’ve only ever dreamed of.

"My family and I have always had such fantastic support from Macmillan, from the moment I was diagnosed, and I wanted to do something to show them my gratitude.

"I hope the money this walk has raised goes a long way to providing Macmillan services that other patients and their families can benefit from," he added.

Nikki James, regional fundraising manager for Macmillan, said: "What Martyn has achieved is truly inspiring. His determination, positivity and resilience never ceases to amaze me.

"We are pleased to have been able to support Martyn from the moment he was diagnosed and hope to continue supporting him for as long as he needs us.

"The incredible amount of money he has raised will enable us to continue supporting local people living with cancer, like Martyn, in the future.

"There are not enough words to explain how grateful we are for all he has done."
