Cancer charity helped by walk
BREAST cancer survivor Catherine Bennett has raised more than £140 with a sponsored walk.
The 51-year-old organised yesterday's ramble from Leek to Tittesworth Reservoir in aid of Breakthrough Breast Cancer.
Twenty walkers turned out for the three-mile walk, completing it in 90 minutes.
Catherine, of Buxton Road Leek, said: "The walk was a great success and we even had a finishing line made up of bras. The more money we can make from these events the better."

The mother-of-four was diagnosed with breast cancer in 2009.
Catherine, who has raised almost £8,000 for charity, added: "I want to get a cure for cancer or an earlier diagnosis. Three of my children are girls and I don't want them to ever go through what I have had to. It was horrible."
Each walker paid £5 to take part in the walk, while each dog was charged £1.
Goody bags sponsored by businesses, including the Co-op, Severn Trent Water and Asda, were handed out.
