Supporters of a Weston hospice pushed a bed along the seafront and raised more than £500 for people with life-limiting conditions.

The Friends of Weston Hospicecare and the Boys Brigade took part in the fundraiser from Knightstone to the SeaQuarium.

The bed was donated by Weston-based medical equipment firm MedEquip and supporters carried collection buckets to enable passersby to donate.

Community fundraiser Sue Harding said: “It was fantastic to see people out supporting the hospice. A huge thanks to all members of the Weston-based friends for their volunteering efforts.

“Community events play a crucial part in supporting the care the hospice offers and seeing members of the community willing to donate hard-earned money to the hospice was greatly appreciated.”

The group would like to thank the Boys Brigade, MedEquip and the Grand Pier for their support.
