Four intrepid walkers from Ely are aiming to raise more than £3,000 by hiking across the North of England.

Neil Garner, Tom Brennand, Jayne Fuller and Richard Granville will set off from Robin Hood's Bay, in North Yorkshire, on Saturday, August 25, facing a trek of nearly 190 miles.

The team will have nine days to complete the coast-to-coast walk if they are to successfully raise the money for the MS Society.

For Mr Garner, whose father Gerald was diagnosed with multiple sclerosis, this walk will mean a lot.

He said: "We didn't know much about the condition. We were put in touch with the MS Society and they have been amazing.

"The MS Society has done so much for us, now it's time I did something for them."
