A group of teenagers are setting off on a fancy dress walk to Cambridge today (August 19).

The youngsters are a part of a National Citizen Service team taking on the 11 mile trek from Huntingdon to raise money for Age UK.

One of those is Rebekah Clark, who said: “All funds that we raise through sponsors and our just giving page will go directly to Age UK, a charity that deals with the needs of the elderly and aims to make life more enjoyable and comfortable for them.”

Fifteen of the team have donned their best costumes and are hoping to raise as much money as they can for the charity.
