Newent and District Rotary Club has presented three cheques of £2000 each to St Michael's Hospice, Gloucestershire Macmillan Cancer Relief and Marie Curie Cancer Care.

The money came from fundraising events for the charities.

A 50-mile walk from the outskirts of Bristol via the Severn Bridge, Chepstow, Wye Valley, Ross on Wye to Newent generated half the funds.

It was followed by a 120 mile cycle ride from Marble Arch, London to Newent.
