A GREAT Harwood woman put her best feet forward for a 66-mile walk to raise money for charity.
Janice Moughton, 47, joined two other walkers for the four-day trek from Rochdale to Mansfield in Nottingham-shire.
The group arrived at Mansfield Town Football Club on Saturday morning in time for the Second Division match against Oldham, and they raised more than £265 for the Robyn Brooks Appeal.
Seven-year-old Robyn, who lives in Rochdale, suffers from neuroblastoma - a rare form of cancer - and is currently undergoing vital treatment in New York. Around £400,000 has been raised for the appeal so far and the charity has the support of pop stars Gareth Gates, Atomic Kitten and Blue.
Janice, who is a member of the Long Distance Walkers Association, said she got involved after meeting the event organiser, window cleaner Steven "Moggie" Murray, during a walk in Hebden Bridge.
She said: "Moggie told me that he did lots of walking for charity, carrying a ladder with him on the way, and he is very well-known in Rochdale for it. I decided to get involved as it was such an important cause. I hadn't done anything like this for charity before but I am used to walking long distances."
Janice, of Mount Street, who has been walking for eight years, said that they covered an average of 16 miles a day, stopping overnight in hotels and pubs. She returned to Accrington by coach on Saturday evening.
She added: "It went really well and we were lucky that the weather stayed nice.
"It was a bit different from fell walking as we walked along the main roads, but it was a good experience and very worthwhile."
