Two Halesworth women are coming together to complete an epic nighttime challenge and raise money to help those battling breast cancer.

Christine Jeffery and Linda Hopkins are set to take part in the London Moonwalk on Saturday, May 12.

The 26.2 miles nighttime event is organised by Walk the Walk - a grant making charity which funds research into causes of breast cancer.

The pair, who are hoping to raise £400, have been training for the challenge since January.

Ms Hopkins said: “Christine and I think that it is important in life to set yourself challenges, and we both love walking, so what better way to do it than taking part in the London Moonwalk to raise money for breast cancer charities.
