A KAIMEND cattle man who completed a feat of endurance by pregnancy scanning 1,114 cows in just ten hours has raised more than £17,000 for two charities.

Stevie Rolfe said: “I was absolutely shattered by the time I finished. My legs were like jelly and actually gave way at the end because I was so tired.

“However, the fatigue and effort was incredibly worthwhile because of the amount of money raised.”

Stevie, who has handed over cheques to Cancer Research UK and the Little Haven, was inspired to embark upon his ambitious challenge after his sister, Heather, lost her battle with cancer in June at the age of just 51. Stevie’s wife Sarah also lost her sister to breast cancer.
