A TEENAGER put her best foot forward as she walked through villages to raise nearly £1,000.

Around 12 months ago Bethan Thorneycroft, 17, was diagnosed with an incurable auto-immune disease called lupus which affects just 30,000 people in the UK - 90 per cent of whom are women.

Bethan, of Melbourne Road, Balby, wanted to raise awareness for the litte-known condition which can cause extreme fatigue, joint pain and muscle aches.

She and a group of family and friends embarked on a sponsored walk through various villages in the borough, such as Warmsworth and Sprotbrough.

The team of terrific trekkers raised over £960 for the national charity Lupus UK.
