Your motivation shone through

Fantastic Eddie [Izzard] on your marathon run in South Africa, you are a true spirit. Nelson Mandela would have been truly proud of you, your determination and motivation shone through, throughout your 27 days on the move.

Maurice and I watched your progress nightly on BBC Three.

Good health and good luck to all you do in the future.

Maurice & Ann Watson

Mayor & Mayoress of Bexhill
