There was more to the silver-haired, shawl-wearing brigade — complete with inflatable walking frame — than met the eye as they were in fact mostly staff from the Ladyfield House care home, along with a few relatives of residents.

They completed a ten-mile sponsored walk along the canal to Worksop and back in fancy dress as “elderly people” and raised more than £1,000 to fund activities for residents.
