A spokesperson said: “Our mission was to run or walk as far as we could during March, and we managed to clock up an impressive 4,285 kilometres. 

“Thanks to the support of family and friends, the intrepid team – the ‘King’s Ely Runners’ – have raised more than £3,300 for Arthur Rank.”

The team was made up of Chanre Bond, Daniel Everest, Elisabeth Tyrrell, Gary Williams, Helen Melville, Helen Ost, Hugh James and Jonathan Shaw.
