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.
