It is hoped the walk will raise more than £3,000 for the charity. It is the 15th year the walk has taken place, and the event has raised more than £30,000 in that time.

Amrik Sangha, one of the walkers, said: “One of the basic tenets of the Sikh religion is to support members of society who are in need of help. We as a community also support the homeless locally by donating food.”
