A RETFORD scout group has walked the Cuckoo Way over four days raising money for charity.

Members of 7th Retford (St Swithun’s) Scout Group raised around £1,000 which has been donated various charities including B.A.R.K, RSPCA, MS Society, Comic Relief and a Special Care Baby Unit.

They have also put some money towards their adventure week taking place in August.

A total of 22 people took part in various parts of the four day walk, including 10 primary school pupils.

Only one of the group, John, 12, completed the entire The Cuckoo Way, walking 51 miles in four days.

The youngest in the group is 10-years-old and he completed almost 42 miles and brought his granddad with him on the last day.
