All the 4s: Fundraising target exceeded!

Last year's walk through five English counties - 150 miles in 10 days - had aimed to raise £35,000 for The Royal Anglian Regiment Benevolent Charity.

As it's turned out the hikers have at the latest count raised over £44,000! This is an amazing achievement for chief organiser Christine Bonner and her team.

It's fitting that 44 thousand pounds has been raised for they called their walk "All the 4s: 4 the boys, 4 the families, 4 the fallen, 4 ever"

Christine said: "People were so kind and it showed us that they really do care about the boys in their County Infantry Regiment - The Royal Anglian Regiment. We all thank you from the bottom of our hearts."

The country's four square behind you, Christine! Well done!
