A group of 12 friends have completed a 100km trek from Oxford to Kettering to raise money for Cransley Hospice.

The walkers started the charity trek on Friday, August 3, and reached their destination during the early hours of Saturday, August 4.

They stopped for rest and refreshment breaks every seven and a half miles.

After a brief period of rest the walkers were all back out at a family fun day at The Woolcomber pub, Kettering, on Saturday, August 4, held in a bid to raise more funds for the charity.

Organiser Liam Noble, of Kettering, said sponsorship money was still coming in but they would be giving at least £4,000 to the hospice.

He said: “Cancer affects everyone. My dad passed away last year. He was in Cransley Hospice for a brief rest bite and that helped tremendously.”

Last year some members of the group climbed Kilimanjaro to raise cash for the hospice and Help for Heroes.
