A Heanor man is calling on townsfolk to join a charity walk from Burton upon Trent to Swarkston on September 29.

James Draper, of Ray street, aims to raise £10,000 for Macmillan, Marie Curie, Alzheimer’s Research UK, Headway and Clic Sargent through the ten mile Walk of Life event.

He said: “It is for five great causes - at the end of the day this is stuff that can affect everyone’s life. So far 140 walkers are to take part. To participate call James on 07856969873.
