The team of 30 did the 18-mile walk to show solidarity for Melanie Bamber, 30, of Brookfield, who was diagnosed with ovarian cancer in February, which has now spread to her kidneys and lungs.

The money raised will go towards Rosemere Cancer Foundation.

Fund-raiser and organiser Donna Moss said: “Rosemere have been a great support to Mel and many other cancer sufferers and so far we have raised over £3,500.
