MAGICIANS and children’s entertainers came up trumps when they raised almost £4,000 after trekking 115 miles from Portsmouth to London.

The Magic Trek was organised in a bid to raise cash for blood cancer charity, the Anthony Nolan Trust.

The team – one dressed in a giant rabbit costume – fought through wet and windy weather with tired feet to reach the city after a five day walk.

Sean Lobban, 46, of St George’s Road in Cosham who organised the walk, said: ‘It went alright. We made it. Some of us found it difficult. We all had quite bad feet. But it was very good fun. The group was a very good mix of people so there were times when we were having a laugh and a giggle which was getting us through difficult times.’

The group walked around 22 miles a day, stopping off at magic clubs along the way. They are now hoping to do another trek.
