Charity walkers pin sunflowers to underwear
A group of charity walkers took part in a mass trip across Hull's Humber Bridge and back this weekend in remembrance of a friend whom they had loved and lost.

Friends and family of Nikki Fagg, who died from cervical cancer at only 33, each wore giant sunflowers pinned to their underwear and clothes to raise money for her charity, Hull Daily Mail reports.

More than 140 people participated in the first Nikki's Knicker Walk, which raised more than £1,500 for Nikki's Trust, a charity set up to increase awareness of the HPV vaccine while also raising money for pain control for cancer patients.

Nikki's husband Pete Fagg told the newspaper that everyone wants to make sure something good can come from her untimely passing.

"Anything like this that helps us to raise awareness of the trust is superb. We need to get the message out about the vaccine to girls and to parents as well, but we are heading in the right direction," he said.
