A coastal walk has gone a long way towards boosting the coffers of fundraising campaign.

More than 50 people covered a combined distance of 600 miles strolling from Weybourne to Sheringham.

A total of £1,900 was raised from the walk towards the refurbishment of Weybourne Village Hall.

Holt based Sponge cakes and Rocky Bottom Crabs and Lobsters in West Runton sponsored the We Would Walk 500 Miles Challenge, which was organised by Kate and Martin Price.

Marjorie Wright and Glen Weston decided to cover the distance pushing each other in a wheelbarrow, raising more than £400.
