Runners present a cheque for £1,300 to the medical charity
Members of the Tuckers Arms Relay team from Dalwood have raised £1,300 for the Duchenne and Becker Muscular Dystrophy charity.
And last week member Anne Long presented a giant cheque for the amount to the organisation.
The relay team ran a mile each in the Three Hills Challenge at Dalwood and raised the money with a bingo night and other sponsorship.
Organisers thanked all their helpers and supporters which included the Tuckers Arms, Dalwood Run Committee, Andrewhayes Caravan Park, Sewards Coaches, Burrow Farm Gardens, Millers Farm Shop and the Burroughs Family at Abbey Farm.

? Duchenne muscular dystrophy (DMD) is the most common fatal genetic disorder diagnosed in childhood, affecting approximately one in every 3,500 live male births - around 2,500 people have DMD in the UK. Because the Duchenne gene is found on the X-chromosome, it primarily affects boys with less than one per cent being female. However, it occurs across all races and cultures.
