Big-hearted armed forces staff were cheered on by thousands of fans at football grounds around South Yorkshire as part of a charity trek to raise money for injured soldiers.

Four members of staff from the RAF Recruitment Centre in Sheffield city centre trekked 25 miles in full army kit, which included pit stops at Barnsley's Oakwell Stadium, Rotherham United's New York Stadium, Sheffield Wednesday's Hillsborough and Sheffield United's Bramall Lane.

Following the challenge at the end of January, they have so far raised nearly £250 towards a £1500 target for Help for Heroes, which helps injured servicemen and women.

After finally arriving at Bramall Lane, one of those taking part Andrew Dunn said: "Finally arrived 25 miles later, sore feet but worth it. Thank you to all our supporters."
