About two dozen walkers joined in a fundraising walk on Sunday to help raise awareness of domestic violence.

Organised by the Ferry Project in Wisbech the 'Walk a Mile in Their Shoes' event was held at the town park as part of the numerous activities held there for WisBEACH Rock Festival.

Men swapped their usual trainers and brogues to don high heels while women dressed in suits and ties to take part in the walk which was joined by Wisbech mayor Andrew Lynn and also Keith Smith, founder of the Ferry Project.

This was the second time the walk has been held and it raised well over £2,300, which will go towards a crisis fund, which can be accessed by local people fleeing domestic violence.
