Around 5,000 people raised more than £186,000 yesterday by completing the Free Radio Walk for Kids challenge.

The 13 mile circular walk raised the cash for local charities, including Acorns Children’s Hospice, Russells Hall Hospital, Promise Dreams and Hope House Children’s Hospice in Shropshire.

In total, 65,000 miles were walked – that's almost one and a half times around the earth.
