SUTTON villagers raised more than £3,000 for Breakthrough Breast Cancer when they completed a 13-mile circular Dawn Walk.

Eighteen people took part, leaving the school at 5am and returning by around 10.30am. Many of them had never walked that distance so met and exceeded personal goals, as well as raising money for the charity and making new friends.

Organiser Sally White said that the event was so enjoyable that they are going to do it again next year and hopefully on an annual basis after that. The next Sutton Dawn Walk will take place on May 17, 2008. Posters advertising the training and run-up to the event will be displayed around the village so that more people can take part.

Participants are pictured with the cheque raised for charity through their efforts.
