Almost 100 people joined former Sheffield Wednesday star Chris Waddle for a six-mile walk to raise £4,000 for charity.

Waddle’s Waddle was organised by Cavendish Cancer Care, where ex-England international Chris is a patron.

Walkers met at Chatsworth House and could take part in either a two-mile walk, aimed at younger families, or a longer six-mile walk for those who felt more adventurous.

All the money raised from the walk went towards the Sheffield-based charity, which offers emotional support and advice to those suffering from cancer.

Chris said: “I felt passionately about the walk because it supported the brilliant work Cavendish Cancer Care carries out in providing free support to people in Sheffield and North East Derbyshire affected by cancer.”

Sally Eustace, Cavendish fundraiser, said: “It’s important to have fun when you’re fundraising.

“We wanted people to come along and have a good time. The bonus is that the day’s events have not only been successful in terms of the monies raised but that people showing their support had a good time.

“Thanks to all those people and Chris Waddle for fundraising tirelessly towards our cause.”
