Rais­ing char­ity cash – rain or shine!

The Scarborough News - - WELCOME TO YOUR NEWS - Photo fo­cus – Scalby Walk 2018

It may have been one of the wettest ever Scalby Walks in the event’s 59-year his­tory – but with £860 raised for char­ity it was still a huge suc­cess.

More than 40 en­trants braved the rain on Easter Mon­day to com­plete the walk, which tra­di­tion­ally fea­tures half a pint in a num­ber of pubs along the way. Public­ity of­fi­cer John White said: “We are very pleased with how it went, given the weather was atro­cious. Lots of par­tic­i­pants were in fancy dress and re­ally got into the spirit.” He also thanked ev­ery­one who took part, plus the or­gan­is­ing com­mit­tee and mar­shalls who helped out. Pro­ceeds this year were do­nated to the Teenage Can­cer Trust. Pic­tured are Sean Kelly, Tom Cath­cart, John White, Shirley Bell and Jamie Wal­lis. Pic­ture by Richard Pon­ter 181912
