Going that extra mile
Walkers from Ashford were going for gold on Sunday at the 21st Anniversary KM Charity Walk.
Three hundred people took part, raising £17,000 for 31 good causes across the county.
Charities getting a welcome funding boost included MIND, Pilgrims Hospice, Parkinson’s UK, Macmillan Cancer Support, and the Royal British Legion Poppy Appeal.
