Family and friends took part in the annual Walk for Myton fundraising event in memory of Rugby man Tony Wood.

Two walkers took the challenge one step further by completing the six-mile route in Warwick with fridges strapped to their backs.

Ian Sumner and Sam Davidson were part of a team of friends and family walking in memory of their former Rolls Royce colleague Tony Wood, from Rugby, who died in 2011.

They were joined by Tony’s daughter Toni-Anne and more than 30 friends and family hoping to raise £1,500 by ‘Walking for Woody’.

Toni-Anne said: “We wanted to do something in return for all the support Myton gave my dad and our family.

They were absolutely amazing.” Overall more than 440 took part in the Walk for Myton and raised around £20,000 in sponsorship.

Myton thanked everyone who took part.
