Weight Watchers members will be putting their best feet forward to raise money for a health charity.

The 5K circular walk for the British Lung Foundation around Whitlingham Country Park in Trowse on the edge of Norwich, is happening at 1pm on Saturday, June 9.

It has been organised by Weight Watchers coach, Tracey Maidment, 52, from Cozens Road in Norwich.

Mrs Maidment, a former smoker, is raising money for the British Lung Foundation because her father died in 2012 from pulmonary fibrosis which scars the lungs and causes breathing problems.

He and his family were helped by the Breath Easy support group, part of the British Lung Foundation.

Mrs Maidment has organised the walk as part of Weight Watchers' #WW5kMyWay challenge.
