BOILING kettles and a five-mile walk helped a Fenland epilepsy sufferer exceed the total she raised last year for a national charity.

Nicola Jenner, of Walpole St Peter, held a tea break on Friday at Walpole Water Gardens as part of Epilepsy Action's National Tea Break.

But she didn't stop there - and the following day walked from Sutton Bridge to Walpole St Peter with life-long friend Dawn Eaton who visited from Bedfordshire.

The money raised by Nicola and Dawn from the just the walk alone was more than �205 - the grand total Nicola raised for the National Tea Break last year.
