A CHARITY walk raised more than £500 for a lupus research charity.

Geraldine Cooke, 32, who was diagnosed with the incurable disease in 2007, organised the walk to raise awareness about Lupus. Lupus is the name for a number of ailments which affect the immune system. She led the walk along the Spen Valley Greenway, from Cleckheaton to Heckmondwike, before the walkers returned to PJ’s Health and Fitness Village for a fund raising fair with stalls, raffle, tombola along and collection buckets. More than £500 was raised for the Lupus UK charity.

Geraldine, of Liversedge, said: “Thanks to everyone who donated items, who bought raffle tickets, took part in, or sponsored, the walk, and those who supported the fair. Special thanks to all my family and my boyfriend, Jason Spurr, for their help.”
