First published in North Essex

A HOARD of walkers braved the blistering heat to raise cash for charity with a seafront trek.

The Walton branch of the Motor Neurone Disease Association organised the walk for the second year running to boost the charity.

More than 80 people took part, and the walkers were set off by deputy mayor of Frinton and Walton Iris Johnson.

They raised £1,500 with the four mile walk from Frinton to Walton pier and back again.

The event was organised by motor neurone disease sufferer Albert Smith and the charity’s area organiser Karen Brown.

Mr Smith said: “It was fantastic, and I am absolutely delighted with the turnout and the amount raised.

“We are hoping to make it an annual event.”
