In November, The Mirror told how a farmer lost his best friend, sister and dog in the space of a year and took on them in honor of a mammoth charity challenge.
Leo Deen was struggling to cope with the family’s recent bereavement and decided to take a long hike from Congleton in Cheshire to Glasgow, Scotland while pushing a garden wheelbarrow.
The 57-year-old was devastated when his best friend Joey Henshaw died in January, followed by the death of his border collie, Rollo, just weeks later.
The farmer said: “Joey was like a brother to me and it was really sad when he died. Then Rollo died a few weeks later. Rollo was my best soulmate, he was sweet as a nut.”
The white and brown collie lived with Leo on his farm in Timbersbrook for three years but quickly lost weight when diagnosed with cancer and died just weeks later.
But when Leo’s sister Lea Wright died five weeks ago, he needed to do something to take his mind off the losses he’d suffered over the past year.
He said: “I didn’t believe Lea died – she was only 18 months older than me.
“I had to have her shut up and even though I saw the coffin, I didn’t believe she was dead. I needed something to do, so I decided to walk to Glasgow.”
