West Norfolk fundraisers felt the heat as they took on the Pier to Pier challenge in aid of the East Anglia’s Children’s Hospices (EACH).

The charity’s 32-mile challenge  saw participants walk from Great Yarmouth to Cromer during last Saturday’s heatwave.

One of the teams was from North Lynn-based educational toys company, Learning Resources, which raised more than £7,000 for the charity.

“The walk was a real test of endurance and teamwork as the team covered 32 miles on one of the hottest days of the year. 

“The team completed the hike in just over 12 hours, with all of the party making it to the end together. 

“It certainly was a day for drinking lots of water and breaking out the plasters,” said a spokesman for the firm.

 Another Lynn team which took part was Gary Walker, Tammy Mounsey and Justin Walker from military charity, The Bridge for Heroes, which saw them raise £722.

“The Bridge for Heroes team led the way from the start, finishing first in Cromer in just under 11 hours, including the compulsory rest stops,” said Mr Walker.

The event saw more than £30,000 raised for EACH.
