STAFF from Thornes Farm Shop, Stockleigh Pomeroy aka Team Thornes are heading to the big smoke to walk 26 miles in aid of Hospiscare.

Back in the early autumn they joined the 40 club which is organised by hospiscare.

It involves 40 businesses around the Mid Devon area to each raise £1000 for the charity in their 40th year, so team Thornes took on this challenge kicking off the new year by going big.

Team Thornes is heading to London to walk a marathon following the River Thames which has been organised by Ultra Challenge.

Katie Davie will be walking dressed as a strawberry and her sister Emma is doing it in crocs!

They will be walking with more than a thousand other people on Sunday, January 30.

Team Thornes have been putting in the miles training when they can, evenings and days off.

If you would like to sponsor them then go to: and type in teamthornes there you can donate as much as you can and don't forget to gift aid if you are a tax payer.

They will keep you updated on all the social media sites throughout the day.

This is just the beginning of their fundraising year. For more information go to the website or call 01363 866933.
