A marathon walking challenge has raised more than £2,700 for Lympstone Pre-school after a group of parents and pre-school supporters strode 26 miles from East Devon to South Devon.
A spokeswoman for the event said: “We have been very lucky to have received some matched- funding for part of the amount from Barclays Bank, who have been amazing in supporting the pre-school over the last few years.”
The 10 women walked or ran a return journey to Cockwood, near Starcross, from the Swan Inn, Lymsptone.
The walk took the group nine hours to complete, and two-and-a-half-hours for those running half-marathon distances.
