Claire, who has worked at the Bo’ness company for ten years decided to take part in the challenge after a friend’s wife was diagnosed with cancer.

Having previously completed the Moonwalk in Edinburgh, walking five miles a day, around 10,000 steps, seemed like an achievable challenge.

Claire eventually completed 310,000 steps, equivalent to a walk from Manchester to London, by walking to and from work, taking stairs rather than lifts and walking to the supermarket.

Claire said: “When the sun was out the challenge seemed a lot easier but every step of the way what really helped was the support I received from friends, family and colleagues.

I would like to say a huge thanks to everyone who helped me and Jack in particular.”

Jack Marshall of Tapside Coffee Rentals said: “Our customers have nothing but good things to say about her so it was a pleasure to give her my support.”
