British cricket legend Sir Ian Botham has completed his 12th long-distance walk for charity.

The 52-year-old former test captain walked 140 miles through nine towns in England and Scotland to raise money for Leukaemia Research.

“It has gone very, very well,” he told England’s Sunday Sun newspaper. “I think it has been extremely successful and the public have responded magnificently. In the buckets we are approaching about a quarter of a million or more, but that is just what we have collected physically on the road. There is all the sponsorship money to come after that. It is always nice to get the job done. There will be a little bit of a celebration tonight and then I’m on holiday.”

Sir Ian has raised over £12 million (US$20 million) since completing his first walk in 1985 – 900 miles from the northern most tip of Britain to the most southerly point.
