A total of 190 ramblers took on the Royal Wolverhampton NHS Trust Walking for Health challenge and raised £2,804 for Compton Hospice by taking part in the charity walk.
The group took on the challenge on May 9th, where they completed either a four-mile or a 12-mile walk starting and finishing at Aldersley Leisure Village.
The annual event is part of the Million Miles for Wolverhampton Challenge, which was launched earlier this year in a bid to tackle the obesity problem in the city.
Coordinator Andrew Tomlinson said: “We asked our walkers which charity they would like to support and they choose Compton Hospice.
“I am really proud of the 24 volunteers for their hard work on the day, as well as all of the walkers who joined us on the trail.
“We hold regular walks every month and we are always welcoming new people to come along and join us.”

Compton Hospice would like to thank all of the walkers for their generosity.
