Fundraiser Clare Hyde is hoping a virtual walk to Kenya will raise £1,000 for charity and she is inviting as many walkers as possible to join her challenge.

Clare, who lives near Longridge, said:”Got ‘cabin fever’, wanting to spread your wings, keen to travel, but still restricted? Why don’t you walk to Kenya with us, visiting 15 countries, in Europe, Middle East and Africa ... we can do it virtually."

She continued: “Our local Christian Aid Group are looking for fellow ‘walkers’ to contribute their mileage (recorded on their phones) during the month of May. One of the group has offered to illustrate our travels along the route.”
