A 15-year-old girl has raised £400 for the Royal British Legion with a 10km sponsored walk to four North Kirklees war memorials.

Whitcliffe Mount pupil Katie Wilby, of Third Avenue. Liversedge, was joined by her dad Mick and sister Rebecca on the route, which started at the Cleckheaton memorial.

From there, she visited the monuments at Heckmondwike, Batley and Dewsbury, before returning to Cleckheaton’s memorial in three hours, where she celebrated with all the family, on August 2.
