More than 170 people took part in a charity beach run to raise money for the Stroke Association.

A sea of purple fundraisers took to Hunstanton beach to complete the 10K course on Sunday, June 24.

The Beat the Tide event raised more than £5,000 for the charity, which supports stroke survivors and their families.

George Burroughs, Community and events Fundraising Manager at the Stroke Association said: “Every five minutes across the UK, someone’s life is turned upside down by stroke. By taking part in Beat the Tide, each runner has helped us continue to support stroke survivors and their families as they rebuild their lives.

“We’re extremely grateful to everyone who took part, especially local business McCarthy and Stone, who donated £500 to the Stroke Association’s local support groups across Norfolk. It was a fantastic turn out and a great day for everyone involved.”
