HUNDREDS of people donned pink bras and took part in a sponsored walk to help raise more than �9000 for a breast cancer charity.

Almost 250 men, women and children took part in Widdington's five-mile Walk the Walk on Saturday.

Setting off to the Chariots of Fire soundtrack, the brave walkers made their way through the village and the surrounding footpaths of Widdington and Debden. Everyone was wearing a pink bra and carrying a pink helium balloon.

Walker Gary Dunnett said: "The event was a huge success with the walkers receiving a glass of pink fizz on their return.

"The evening was great fun with a live band, barbeque and hog roast. In addition to the sponsorship by all the walkers the event was generously supported by local businesses."

Breast cancer charity Walk the Walk has been raising money since the first event was held in 1996. Since then it has gone from strength to strength raising millions of pounds to help fight breast cancer.
