Wensleydale friends organise charity race night

Members of the Wensleydale Whoppers.

A group of friends is organising a race night to raise money for breast cancer charity Walk the Walk.

The ten women all aged over 50 have called themselves the Wensleydale Whoppers.

They will take part in the Edinburgh Moonwalk charity event in September.

Ahead of the walk, they are holding a race night at the Wensleydale Ruby Club on August 19.

One of the organisers Val Robinson said: “The rugby club has very kindly offered the venue free of charge as we are all local to the area and we are raising money for charity.

“The event is a ticket event with a pie, peas and pudding supper included in the ticket price of £10.”

Val added: “We are organising the event as ten ladies over 50 are doing the Edinburgh Moonwalk in September which is a 13 or 26 miles walk at night.

“The charity is close to our hearts as we have all been personally affected by breast cancer, either ourselves, close family members or through friends.”

Other team members of Wensleydale Whoppers are Jenny Blackburn, Judith Carlisle, Suzanne Wood, Jo Holmes, Andrea Cooper, Sally McGregor, Lynn Holmes, Rebecca Parr and Shirley Broadley
