Supporters from across East Devon turned their miles into money for a local charity walking event. 

More than 600 people took part in Men’s Walk – Your Way to raise vital funds for Hospiscare. 

As Men’s Walk couldn’t take place in its normal format this year due to the current lockdown, every single walker received a special Men’s Walk box, kindly delivered by DPD at no cost to the local charity. 

The box included a bottle of special Men’s Walk tenth anniversary beer from Exeter Brewery, a pasty from Chunk of Devon and a Men’s Walk t-shirt and beanie.  

A spokesman for Hospiscare said the charity has been ‘overwhelmed’ by the support the community has shown Men’s Walk in its new format.  

The charity thanked everyone who took part in Men’s Walk – Your Way and, although the walkers had to take part in groups miles apart, together they raised more than £87,000 to support end-of-life care in Devon.
