Rotarians have put their best feet forward to help raise money for charity.

A team from the Rotary Club of King’s Lynn took part in the Walking4Norfolk challenge, launched on May 12.

They were among 39 teams representing 24 charities with five members in each team, to collectively walk 375 miles – the equivalent distance from Norwich Cathedral to Notre Dame in Paris.

The team finished third and has so far raised more than £2,850, with £500 going to Norfolk’s unpaid carers and the remainder to the Rotary Foundation to support the campaign to eradicate polio. 

The walking challenge was devised by former High Sherriff of Norfolk, James Bagge to raise money for the county’s unpaid carers.   

When the last team crossed the virtual finished line it meant the walkers had covered a combined total of 14,625 miles.
