Staff from a nursing home wrapped up warm as they braved a sponsored walk along Eastbourne seafront.

The team from Woodside Hall Nursing Home in Polegate Road, Hailsham, took part in the eight mile challenge on Saturday March 16.

It saw them walk from Langney breakwater along the full length of the seafront including the pier, before heading back again.

The group donned rain jackets and hats as the weather on the day was wet and windy.

The challenge took the members of staff just under three hours to complete.

The sponsored walk helped to raise a total of £737 which will go to the residents’ fund.

Residents at the home have also been keeping busy and recently knitted squares which were made into blankets.

These ended up being given to a good cause and were given to Eastbourne Cats Protection.
