Huddersfield donned its walking boots over the weekend as hundreds took on the Examiner’s Charity Challenge.

Various walks included scenic 20k, seven mile and four mile routes starting in Lepton, a wheelchair and buggy push in Beaumont Park with a horse ride from Marsden.

And while many breezed their way through a light stroll, one determined fundraiser showed real adversity as she tackled the 20k, despite suffering a number of painful blisters.

Cerise Booth completed the Challenge’s longest route from Lepton Highlanders Sports and Social Club in seven and a half hours in aid of her and husband Kevin’s charity British Inclusive Golf.

The Netherton couple set up the charity in 2012 after 57-year-old Kevin felt forced to give up sport after a series of operations on damaged ligaments.

Kevin and Cerise work with people with all kinds of disability and get them playing golf.

“The aim is to give people that confidence back after they think they’ll never play sport again”, Kevin said.

And following their efforts, Cerise, 56, helped raise more than £500 for the charity yesterday.

She said: “It was hard work and I got to the top of the first hill and thought about turning back, but I remembered the charity and everyone who has sponsored me so I couldn’t give up.”

This year marked the 27th year of the challenge with thousands being raised over the years.

Popular charities include local causes such as Kirkwood Hospice, the Forget Me Not Trust and West Yorkshire Dog Rescue.

Money raised from this year’s Challenge is expected to total £4,500.

Huddersfield Lions chairman Graham Isley said: “We’ve had a warm reaction from people turning up to walk for their chosen charities.

“It’s great to see people of all ages and abilities still having a go after 27 years.”
