A group from Torridge District Council's Waste Management Team has raised more than �1,000 for children's cancer charity CLIC Sargent by doing a sponsored wheelie bin push along the Tarka Trail.
The 14 strong walking group organised by Peter Catton and supported by council chairman Councillor Margaret Brown and Head of Operational Services Ricky McCormack, set off from Torrington bound for the council's Riverbank House Offices in Bideford.
Several hours and a few blisters later - they made it!
"Everyone involved in the project was fantastic in helping out, sponsoring us and offering support," said Peter.
