THREE colleagues from Burton's npower hub will be trekking 26 miles this weekend in aid of Macmillan Cancer Support.

Today, Jasmine Taplin, Nina Davies and Matthew Sykes will walk for around 12 hours along Hadrian's Wall.

The trek is part of npower's '10 for 10' campaign, marking 10 years of partnership between Macmillan and npower.

The campaign aims to raise £150,000 for Macmillan, ensuring no-one faces cancer alone, and npower has vowed to match the amount raised pound for pound.

The trio, who have managed to raise £2,800 for the trek, will be joined by family and friends in the only challenge of 10 for 10 in which people outside of npower can join in.

ClaireMcDougall, head of community at npower, said: "Macmillan means a lot to the people of npower, and the fact that we've already raised more than £85,000 this year for this fantastic charity is testament to that."
