Weston’s Cancer Research UK fundraising committee organised a 3km stroll around Weston Woods.

A dozen people took part with many opting to stretch their dog’s legs by taking them along.

A fun nature trail and quiz was also put on for the children attending.

A spokesman for the fundraising group said: “We raised about £250.

“We had 12 walkers and four dogs, and the walk through Weston Woods was led by Becky Trout representing Cancer Research UK.”

The fundraisers have been holding events to raise money for the national charity for the past 60 years.

Last year, members organised a 5km walk around the Tyntesfield estate in Wraxall.
