Nearly 200 people joined a sponsored walk to fight cancer.
Councillor Caroline Maudlin, chair of Central Beds Council, organised the walk for her charity of the year, Breakthrough Breast Cancer. 190 walkers plus dogs and even a Shetland pony went on three or five mile strolls around Broom Quarry Lakes. They were fortified by burgers and sausages from Franklins of Thorncote, cooked by Paul from the Bedfordshire Barbecue Centre. Afterwards they were treated to a homemade cream tea. The walkers are on target to raise £3,000. Any outstanding sponsorship money needs to be returned by the end of the month. The biggest fundraiser will win a helicopter ride. Ms Maudlin said: “A special thanks has to go to my brilliant family who all worked together to make this event possible plus all the friends and volunteers.”
