Members from Curves gym joined forces with Co-op staff this week to raise cash for aid agency Care International.

The charity is running a campaign called Walk in her Shoes to raise awareness of women who have to walk five miles just to get water and firewood.

Everyone who took part in the walk, from the Co-op in South Street to Straw’s Bridge and back, paid £3.

Curves manager, Sally Peacock, said: “We had a great day and lovely weather and the money will be going to a great cause.”
