FOUR friends are training around Ixworth to make sure they are fit for a fund-raising marathon walk in May.

Mums Paula Wood, Tamsin Evans, Claire Lyddiatt and Karen Peachment are the Ixworth Knockers and will join 15,000 women on the 26-mile London Moonwalk night power walk raising money for the Walk the Walk breast cancer charity.

All have friends or family who have had breast cancer. Karen said: “None of us has ever done anything like it before. We’re doing about 15 miles training three days a week.”

A disco and hog roast will be held at the village’s Pykkerell Inn on Friday. Tickets are available from Karen on 07719 914439. To sponsor, visit www.walkthewalkfundraising.org/theixworthknockers
