Members of Boston's "Walking the Way to Health" walking groups travelled to Grimsthorpe Castle on Saturday evening (August 17) to take part in a 10k walk to raise funds for Marie Curie nurses.

Transport was sponsored by Kings of Stickney who transported 30 members to attend the evening. Twenty seven members completed the 10k course and three members volunteered their time in the registration tent and on the "In Memory" stand.

Frances Taylor, Healthy Walk Co-ordinator at Boston Borough Council said: "For many members this was a real challenge - a much further distance than they had previously done. They all managed to complete the walk whilst raising money for such a vital service. We all came away with a great sense of achievement."

After the walk, entertainment was enjoyed by all whilst having a picnic and the evening ended with a firework display. It is hoped that the total amount raised from the evening will be in excess of £23,000.
