Speedomick dances with supporters at Land’s End after completing 1,000-mile charity walk!

March 16, 2020

Speedomick has triumphantly completed his 1,000-mile charity walk from John O’Groats to Land’s End. 

The 55-year-old danced with supporters at Land’s End after completing the mammoth fundraiser at about 3.15pm on Saturday 22nd February. 

Mick broke into a dance as he arrived to the sounds of a brass band playing The Proclaimer’s hit ‘I would walk 500 miles’. 

He was also greeted by two fans who bravely donned Mick’s signature blue Speedo trunks to hand him a cheque. 

Speedomick, real name Mick Cullen, took on the challenging task back in December and has raised more than £300k for charity. 

He passed the £300k mark on the final leg of his walk on Saturday. 

Walking nearly a marathon every day, the Everton FC fan said he wanted to take on the challenge to raise money for a charity he is setting up, Leave the Light On. 

It’s hoped the charity will run community projects for people, young and old, who feel isolated. 

Mick has kept supporters entertained and updated with his journey every step of the way posting videos of his progress on Facebook.
