There’s no bridge too far for a young Glenrothes boy who has raised over £300 for charity this week.

Five-year-old Daniel Brown, who has epilepsy, walked across both the Forth and Tay Road Bridges on Saturday to raise money for Epilepsy Scotland.

It was quite an achievement for him to manage it in a day

The youngster was diagnosed with epilepsy in 2013 and he wanted to do something to help the charity which has provided a lot of support for him and his family.

And Daniel managed to complete the crossings to the north and south of the Kingdom in one day at the weekend, despite being admitted to hospital just a week before.

His mum, Felicity, who completed the crossings with him, said: “Daniel was admitted to hospital on Mother’s Day after several seizures so he had to take things slow this weekend.

“We had said to him during the week maybe we should postpone the walk, but he was absolutely determined to do it.

“He did the Tay Bridge in the morning before having lunch and a nap and then doing the Forth Road Bridge in the afternoon. It was quite an achievement for him to manage it in a day.

“We are amazed at the generosity of friends and strangers who have donated to Daniel’s cause, and it’s raised a great deal of awareness about epilepsy.”

And his little brother Blair joined him for the last few hundred yards.

Daniel’s efforts have raised a total of £350 for Epilepsy Scotland.
