Mentoring Camel Trail walk raises money for charities

Hundreds of people have been taking part in a five-mile (8km) charity walk in Cornwall.

The money is being raised for three local charities which help young people.

Mentoring The Event has been organised by Cornwall Council's youth service which is hoping to recruit more mentoring volunteers.

About 500 mentors and young people aged between 13 and 25 are walking the Camel Trail from Wadebridge to Bodmin.

Cornwall Youth Service said it needed more mentoring volunteers to ensure young people with emotional or behavioural problems can be given the one-to-one support they need.

The funds raised by the walk will be shared equally by the Dreadnought Centre, Penhaligon's Friends and Cornwall Dyslexia Association.
