Group walk 47 miles for the Sporting Light Appeal

On Saturday morning, a group of Sporting Light Appeal Community Champions finished their Coastal Walk Challenge after 47 gruelling miles along the Norfolk coast.

The group of over 40 walkers left Hunstanton on Friday at 11am and arrived at Cromer Pier on Saturday morning to a warm reception from family and friends.

It was the third year that the challenge has taken place and 2013 saw the introduction of the ‘Extreme’ version; giving walkers the option of starting at 3pm and continuing through the night without stopping to sleep at Cley Village Hall.

CSF Ambassador Iwan Roberts provided a morale boost near the end by meeting the group at Sheringham and walking the final six miles with them.

After finishing, the group were rewarded with breakfast which was kindly provided and hosted by The Grove in Cromer.
