A team of eight comprising vets and their farmer clients walked 11 hours through the night to raise more than £1,500 for charity.

Molly McKay and Dan Zaharia, from Westpoint Farm Vets in King's Lynn, along with their clients and friends Karin Newell, Ramona Ionesco, Leigh Nobes, Vanessa Tagg, Ian Crutchley, Ian Todd and Kyran List, took part in Walk50, through London, for Dimbleby Cancer Care.

The money will go towards the charity's Care for the Future appeal, which aims to raise £500,000 by the end of 2016 so that it can continue and expand its work within the cancer community.

Ms McKay said: 'This was the second time Kyran and I had taken part in the walk and we had such a great time. As expected, it was tiring and quite the physical challenge, but great fun at the same time.'

This year marks the 50th anniversary of the charity, which was set up in 1966 in memory of broadcaster Richard Dimbleby.
