A TEAM of women from Warners Group Publications in Bourne is embarking on a marathon nightwalk for charity.

The team will be heading down to Hyde Park in London on May 12 to join 17,000 others raising money for Breast Cancer Research.

The team, called Myrtle and her turtles, is made up of Katie Phillips, Pat Price, Jayne Thorpe, Denise Watson and Sarah Machin, who will miss the walk because she is pregnant.

The women will do the walk in just their bras along with thousands of others adding a personal touch by decorating their bras with flashing lights and wearing tutus.

The team has been training hard to prepare for the big day which is fast approaching, training since before Christmas to be able to go the 26-mile distance.

Walk the Walk is celebrating its 15th birthday, raising more than £75m since it started in 1998.

The team hope to raise £2,000 for the cancer charity and have been well supported by their friends and colleagues.
