Jersey man raises £25,000 from marathon walk

Anthony Lewis 
Anthony Lewis completed his first marathon in October 2010
A man who completed the Jersey Marathon despite suffering a stroke three years ago has raised £25,000.
Anthony Lewis, 42, walked the 26.2 miles (42.16km) over the course of a week.
Three years ago he suffered a stroke as a result of a football accident that left him physically disabled and with severe aphasia, affecting his communication.
Despite this, Mr Lewis, learnt to walk again and completed his first marathon.
Mr Lewis, former assistant editor of the Jersey Evening Post, walked the island course over a week - finishing on the day of the main marathon event.
His efforts have raised £25,000 for the Stroke Association in Jersey - five times the amount he hoped to receive.
His partner, Suzie Austin, said the generosity and good wishes of islanders spurred him on when the weather was bad or he felt tired during the feat.
