More than 20 pals, including pub landlord Cliff Morton and Pubwatch chair Mick Willey, gave up their Christmas eve and braved the cold to walk from The Viking Club via Great Oakley and Geddington to Kettering Hospital.

The walk this year was sponsored by Baileys Skip Hire & Recycling Ltd and The Charity Pot to enable the group to buy a pile of presents to hand out to sick children who are in hospital over the Christmas period and to youngsters under the care of Northamptonshire Domestic Abuse Service.
