The Likely Lasses have completed their walk in aid of Motor Neurone Disease Association and have so far raised more than £5,000.

They were cheered over the finish line on Cathedral Green by the Mayor of Wells, Maureen Brandon, as well as family and friends.

Walk organiser Karen Butt said: "We've got blisters and aching limbs and we've found out what we are made of. Each step was inspired by my mum Edna Hopkins and the way she is bravely living with the disease."

All the money raised will be used by the MNDA to fund research into the causes of the disease, to find a treatment and to support people and their families who are living with it.

The team wishes to thank everyone who has supported them and donations can still be made at www.justgiving.com/likelylasses.
