THREE Widnesians trekked length of Hadrian's Wall to raise more than £10,000 for Cancer Re-search.
Graham Hull, John Stott and Bill Mather could not believe the response they have had from people and businesses in Widnes, as well as friends and family, after they received nearly £10,700 from wellwishers.
Graham said: 'We have had a lot of backing and we are really grateful to all the people who have promised money and sponsored us.
'It is quite an amount and it could not have gone to a better cause as all three of us who made the trip have felt the affects of cancer.
'We know of people and families who have suffered and we wanted to do something for them.'
The six-day expedition along the Roman wall which marked the northern point of their empire, started with a gruelling 15-mile trek through the tough terrain. The trio then had to walk a further 44 miles over two days.
Graham added: 'It was tough and we certainly needed a few drinks in the evening to keep us going.
'We all walk pretty regularly and knew what we were getting ourselves into, but it was a challenge. We enjoyed and though and are really glad we raised so much for Cancer Research.'
