Andy Browne walks 120 miles for his grandson Charlie Burns

From 31 August to 6 September 2015, my dad Andy Browne, aged 66, walked 120 miles in Cornwall in memory of his grandson Charlie, who loved the county and visited often.  We have lots of connections to Cornwall. My husband Baz was born in Redruth, and lived in there until he was 10. My brother currently lives in Falmouth.  Furthermore, Marks and Spencer in Hayle have raised money and awareness for us, and most importantly to us, Charlie’s stone is in Illogan.

Andy Browne’s journey started in Illogan, along the South West Path to St Ives and Lands End. He continued through Penzance and Marazion and went as far as Mullion, before heading inland, mainly northwards to Stithians and finally westwards back to Illogan Cemetery.  Andy raised £830 for research into the WADD (Wearable Apnoea Detection Device) to help prevent further deaths from epilepsy.
