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.
