Women walking miles for cancer charities

THREE friends took part in a 20-mile walk around Blenheim Palace for charity.

Amanda Gosby and Elaine Howe, from Henley, and Pippa Easton, from Caversham, donned pink T-shirts and trainers for the 10th annual Ribbonwalk at the Woodstock estate and raised £500 for Breast Cancer Care.

The trio, called Team Cheese and Beetroot, decided to take part as they all have friends who have suffered from breast cancer.

About 1,000 other fundraisers took part in the seven-hour walk.

Miss Gosby, 39, who works at Higgs Group, which publishes the Henley Standard, said: “There were lots of people there and some did it in fancy dress but because it was 20 miles we took it seriously. It was quite tough going. When we reached the halfway point we were all feeling it.
