Last Saturday, the 24th April. Mike Barsby with the Help of Paul and David from the Ritz organised a Sponsored walk with the Funds Raised coming to the Friends of the Hospital.

There were three walk options, to the Lighthouse and back, to Berrow Café and back and to Brean Down Café and back. The walk start times were staggered so that ‘social distancing’ could be observed. The Friends of the Hospital provided the Marshals at the turnaround points whilst the Ritz team checked everyone in and out and provided drinks as they returned.

Over 120 people entered, many with dogs and completed their walks. Much of the fundraising has been done on the Friends Just Giving site and the money is still coming in.

At the time of writing the BLOG the total stands at over £4000. Once all the money raised has been counted, we will send out a note posting the final amount.

On behalf of the Friends, I would like to thank Mike for carrying out all the organisation and Paul and David for their help on the day. It goes without saying that none of these evens can be successful without the people who take part – so a big ‘Thank You’ to all those that entered and raised money for the Friends to use for your Hospital and care in the Community.
