One foot forward for charity

11:40am Friday 30th May 2014

Walkers stepped out for an annual charity stroll from Harwich to Manningtree.

More than 100 people took part in this year's Mayflower Walk on Sunday, organised by the Manningtree Stour Valley Rotary Club.

Now in its 12th year, the event sees walkers trek 13.8 miles from along the Essex Way.

The event has raised thousands of pounds over the years, with walkers donating 75 per cent of the cash they raise to a chosen charity, and the remainder going into Manningtree Rotary Club’s charitable account.

It is not known how much money was raised this year as sponsorship is still being collected.
