A group of fundraisers have raised more than £2,700 by completing the Oundle Pilgrimage.

The Oundle Pilgrimage, which sees walkers and cyclists make their way round villages surrounding the town, was founded by Robin Moore in 2010.

It raised money for Sue Ryder Hospice at Thorpe Hall and Heart Start to buy a defibrillator.

Sue Ryder supporter, Nigel Laxton from Fotheringhay, was one of the founding pilgrim walkers and he walks the whole route each year completing the task in just one day.

This year he led a group, The Fotheringhay Six, from his local pub, the Falcon, around the pilgrimage route raising more than £1,800 got for Heart Start.
