Three women dressed up as mermaids and trekked 60 miles to raise cash for Demelza House Children’s Hospice.

Linda Baker, Mo Foreman and Maria White spent two days walking from Eastbourne to their home town of Hythe, taking collections along the way.

The trio was able to present a cheque for £1,500 to the hospice, to help families across the county.
