WALKING back and forth over the River Thames 14 times may not seem like everyone's cup of tea.

But it will be all in a day's work for a team of intrepid fundraisers.

"There will be 55 to 60 of us doing it. We'll all go down together on the coach, but we all walk at our own pace and meet up at the end, hopefully!

"It's about 11 miles in total. We'll be starting at 10.30am, and aim to finish by about 4pm."
