Ixworth football fan Lee Cracknell drives to all Premier League stadiums in under 24 hours for Samaritans
A Suffolk football fan who drove to all Premier League stadiums in under 24 hours for charity finished with minutes to spare.
Lee Cracknell, 23, of Ixworth, set off on Monday morning at 10 from St James’ Park in Newcastle, and finished at St Mary’s in Southampton the following day.
The 20in24 challenge was all in aid of Samaritans, a charity which provides support to anyone in emotional distress, struggling to cope, or at risk of suicide.
Lee came to rely on their support after battling with his own mental health following a break up and multiple coronavirus lockdowns.
Lee, who said the response to his fund-raiser had been 'all love', was struck by tiredness just after he finished the challenge.
"I felt it after we had finished in Southampton and had to stop," he said.
Lee has so far raised over £1,200.
