Starting off with their very first walk of 22 miles then over the years it has gradually come down as the friends get older to 15 miles, 12 miles and now 10 miles.

Over the past year they raised £1,613 which they presented to Eunice Loney, chairman of the Market Harborough Group of Macmillan Cancer Support, on Sunday at the Nags Head in Market Harborough.
