The Sunset Seaside Stroll took place on Saturday and 96 fundraisers walked from Minster Leas to Queenborough.

This year they were joined by the Mayor and Mayoress of Swale Cllr George and Brenda Bobbin.

Altogether it raised £1,249.53 for Cancer Research UK and there’s still more money to come in.

Chairman Lee Ewart said: “I am really happy with this.

“Again we have had such good feedback – so many people returned from last year and those who joined for the first time have all said they are looking forward to doing it again next year.

"Everything went smoothly and I can’t believe how lucky we were with the weather. I am grateful to so many people who helped make this happen.”
