A GROUP of good Samaritans have raised £3,000 for Macmillan Cancer Support after they embarked on an incredible walk from Moulton Bulb Company to Skegness.

There were ten people in the group in all, with eight walking and two in support vehicles, in a 40-mile journey that took from 5am until 11pm through the pouring rain.

One of the main organisers was participant Kelly Sadeq (33), who said: “We’re very glad to have raised so much money. It was our first time at something like this.

“We do plan to do something like this again in the future but we haven’t decided what that is yet.

“Unfortunately I think it was the only day it poured with rain all summer!”

It’s terrific achievement for all involved and was for a very worthy cause.

Miss Sadeq thanked John Grimwood and Robert Oldershaw for all the help and support they gave them.

They loaned them the support vehicles and Miss Sadeq said it would have been a lot harder without their help.
