A group of posties will extend their delivery round to raise money for a friend.

Around 40 postal workers, based at Whitwood Delivery Office near Castleford, will take part in a sponsored walk for former colleague Peter Carey, who has been diagnosed with Motor Neurone Disease.

They will complete a five mile route from the office to Mr Carey’s hometown of Normanton on November 17.

Walker Lisa Charles said: “Pete is one of the nicest people you could ever wish to meet and this diagnosis has obviously been devastating for him and his family.

“We are doing this walk in support of our friend and to raise awareness about this disease.”
