TWO dentists from Oakham have completed a marathon trek along Hadrian’s Wall to raise funds for charity.

Lesley Goodrick, 58, manager of West Road Dental Practice, and Barbara Jones, a dental hygienist at the practice, took part in the 20 mile walk at the historic landmark to raise more than £900 for Help for Heroes.

The pair joined 250 others for the event and both received medals for completing the challenge.

Lesley said: “We could not have done it without the support of our many loyal sponsors. We are very grateful to them all.”
