Katie Phillips, whose sister Gemma, of Wacton, died in 2010, was joined by more than 200 supporters for the thirteenth Norfolk Family Walk at Holkham Hall, organised by Astro Brain Tumour Fund.

The walk is held in support of family and friends affected by brain tumours, as well as patients, and participants could take part in one, three, six or 10-mile routes.

A total of £6,800 has been raised so far.

Together, the group has walked a total of 1,000 miles this year, which will be added to the Brain Tumour Alliance's campaign Walk Around the World for Brain Tumours. It is hoped that enough mileage will be added up worldwide to encircle the earth.
