MORE than 300 people took part in an annual charity fundraiser on Sunday.

The Rotary Walk was completed in glorious sunshine this year as fundraisers raised cash for their favourite charities with 25 per cent going to Welwyn Hatfield's two rotary clubs for distribution to charities of their choice.

He said: "We had the perfect conditions for walking, it wasn't too hot.
