A group of friends and family took part in a 32k walk in the heat last Sunday to help raise money for the Samaritans, the Salvation Army, Bath Mind and Papyrus.

The group conquered the elements to raise over £1,186 so far for the charities, in memory of Alex. The walk was organised by Steph and Katie, who readers may remember as setting up a local group for families who have experienced bereavement through suicide and for individuals who are struggling with mental health. The group is held on the first Thursday of the month from 6.30 p.m. – 8.30 p.m. at the Salvation Army Hall, Midsomer Norton. For details, contact: 07543 001658.
