A 10-YEAR-OLD Barnsley girl is doing a sponsored walk in memory of a family friend who tragically passed away at the age of two.

Shannon Lambert will walk 10 miles from her family home which is close to Barnsley College to Cannon Hall Farm then back through Baurgh Green finishing at the Chestnut Tree.

The youngster hopes to raise money and awareness for the charity CLIMB, who work on behalf of families affected by metabolic disease.

The walk is in memory of family friend Jack Riley Linford. Jack had a condition called VLCAD which caused complications when trying to fight off a stomach bug. He sadly passed away last year.

Shannon's walk will take place on Saturday, June 20. If you would like to donate visit https://www.justgiving.com/Amy-Vollans/.
