Three friends from Bodicote staged their own sponsored walk to raise more than £1,000 in aid of Macmillan Nurses with Macmillan Cancer Support.

Eileen Hartwell, Joyce Washburn and Lynette Langley responded to a national appeal for support for the charity, and they all completed a half-marathon course that started and finished in their home village of Bodicote.

Lynette said: “They do so much to help so many in their time of need and we felt we should step forward and do what we could to help them continue this invaluable work,”

“We asked our friends and families for their backing and the response has been truly amazing.”
