Team conquer the Coastal Walk Challenge...

The team began their journey at 9am on Thursday in the Norfolk seaside resort of Hunstanton; eventually finishing at Sidestrand Hall Special Needs School at 9:15 on Friday morning.

Craig Fleming, Emma Fletcher and Jackie Thornton from CSF, Chris Batten and Andy Fisher from ipatter.com and Mark Curtis from Larking Gowen chartered accountants crossed the line on schedule; cheered on by pupils from Sidestrand Hall.

Their grueling journey of 47 miles in 24 hours included stops at Burnham Deepdale, Wells, Cley and Sheringham, whilst the team were joined for a five mile stretch from Morston to Cley by North Norfolk MP Norman Lamb and his wife Mary.

So far, the challenge has raised nearly £3,000 for the Sporting Light appeal, but with your help it could be more.
