A TEAM of walkers from Butlin’s Bognor Regis hiked more than 28 miles along the south coast seafront in aid of Great Ormond Street Hospital Children’s Charity, raising in excess of £5,000.

37 people from the resort set off from Brighton Pier and headed along the beach, taking in Shoreham, Worthing, Littlehampton, Clymping and Felpham before returning to Butlin’s.

Jeremy Pardey, Butlin’s resort director, said: “It was a tremendous effort by all of the team who took part.”

“We’re really proud to be supporting GOSH, and this walk is a perfect example of just how much everyone at Butlin’s wants to raise as much as possible for a great cause.”

Butlin’s chose GOSH as their official charity partner for 2015, and the walk is one of many different events across their three resorts in Bognor Regis, Minehead and Skegness.

They aim to raise a total of £150,000.
