They walked more than 47 miles from Chorley to Fleetwood, stopping off at each restaurant for the next team to take on the next leg of the walk.

In Preston, staff at the Riversway outlet were joined by children from Ashton Primary School, who helped pick up litter in the area.

Alex Chattaway, franchisee supervisor, said the children enjoyed joining in.

He said: “We do community projects with the school so they came along for the morning.
