A charity walk undertaken by Frenford & MSA Women FC has smashed its target, both in terms of distance covered and money raised.

The team aimed to raise £6,000 for Refuge and UNICEF Yemen by walking 200km on March 6. 

Instead, they walked 413km and raised £8529, with the Lint Group sponsoring £10 for every kilometre (up to 200km).

Participant Rose Luther said: "These charities support the most vulnerable women and children in our society and abroad. I am very proud to be part of this football team and to have raised so much together."

Sabah Mahmood said: "The success and generosity from friends and family was far beyond my expectation, that’s the most beautiful thing about charity."
