Burley blokes got their legs out to walk a mile in mini skirts to raise money for a cancer charity.

Dozens of men took to the challenge walking through Avenham Park in Preston and helped to raise £400 for Cancer Research UK on Sunday.

What a pretty bunch!

The chaps sported a host of fashion-forward outfits, including sequined tops and pink skirts!

Organiser Roisin Pealan, who has breast cancer, said: “The walk went really well.

“We managed to raise more than £400 towards our gigantic 30k target.

“We have lots more events coming up in the future, including the Yorkshire Three Peaks in June and a Peaky Blinders themed ball in October at Preston North end’s Heath cotes.

“I’m currently being treated for advanced breast cancer and I started a new regime last week so I felt pretty weary in Sunday - but onwards and upwards.”
