"Volunteers kindly stayed on hand to give soup and hot drinks to everyone, in order to keep body heat at a safe temperature.

"So far, over £10,000 has been raised by sponsors, businesses and participants and we would like to wholeheartedly thank everyone who has contributed in any way, either monetary or with their time, for making this event so worthwhile and successful.
