The students have been praised for completing the walk in "good spirits".

The students walked from All Saints in Huddersfield to St John Fisher in Dewsbury - which involved more than two hours of walking.

A St John Fisher spokesperson said: “The day provided many blessings and graces.

“The CAFOD young leaders walked against hunger from All Saints’, Huddersfield to St John Fisher, Dewsbury in good spirits.

“They shared their thoughts en-route for those around the world without food and creating awareness through our words and actions we can join with others so that everyone can live their lives free from hunger.”
