The team of 12 took around eight hours to trek the 22 miles.

They raised more than £600 in the process which will be used for resident activities and the comfort fund for Glenfield Care Home residents in Wisbech.

Katie Doiley, lifestyle coordinator at Glenfield in Moneybank, said: “The walk was organised by Wendy Lincoln our home administrator, and it was a really enjoyable event.

“We raised a lot for a really great cause. Big thanks go to our main supporters who are L&H fruits, Fenland Hygiene, Allpress Farms and Bidfood.”

The next fund raising event at the home is a Christmas fayre on Saturday December 1 from 1 to 4pm. All welcome.

Then on Wednesday December 7 there is bingo at Walsoken Village Hall. Doors open at 6.30pm for a 7pm start.

Glenfield Care Centre is a purpose built 84-bedded home, which opened in November 2008.
