Hikers laced up their walking boots to boost Weston General Hospital’s biggest fundraising projects for many years.

The Uphill hospital is seeking to raise about £400,000 for a new scanner.

The appeal, which is being spearheaded by the hospital’s friends and Weston Area Health NHS Trust is progressing nicely.

Fundraisers are already more than three-quarters of the way towards the required total and a sponsored walk this month has helped to boost the coffers still further.

Keen volunteers, with varying levels of hiking experience, set off from Uphill Wharf Café-Bar.

They completed more than four miles, taking in Brean Down Way and reaching Diamond Farm before returning.
