Gemma Walczyk, who runs the group with her business partner Julie McAuley, said: “This year we want to make it bigger and better than ever, and we are hoping we can get as many people along as possible to raise money for such an important charity.

“We want to double what we have raised in the last few years and it’s going to be a really fun day, with lots going on.”
