Matt Roberts said: “The experience of running from one side of the country to the other was incredible! People’s generosity and interest in my challenge was overwhelming. So many friends were made along the way. The hardest bit for me was sustaining an injury to my knee and ankle that inevitably slowed my pace right down. Sheer determination kept me going. Has it been worth it? Definitely. The awareness and funds I’ve managed to raise for the two children’s charities, has made every ache and twinge completely worth it!”
Simon Wright, Nelson's Journey Chief Executive, who travelled to Wales to thank Matt Roberts for his efforts, said: "This has been an amazing adventure to follow. We are so grateful at Nelson's Journey for Matt's fantastic support. As well as raising money to support bereaved young people, the profile that Matt's run has given the charity has been brilliant. It was a real privilege to be able to thank Matt in person as he arrived at Aberystwyth Pier."
