The walk from Gorleston to Hopton and back again was organised by Matt and Kelly Sampson after their daughter Lily-Rose was treated at Great Ormond Street Hospital at the end of last year.

MORE; family to thank hospital

Lily-Rose took part in the walk and wore a special t-shirt in her pushchair as friends and family rallied in support of her.

Mrs Sampson hopes to raise up to £2,500 in sponsorship from the walk and said it was a wonderful event and thanked everyone for their support.

The family’s appeal to raise funds for the hospital has also been supported by a non-uniform day at Woodlands Primary Academy where Lily-Rose’s siblings go to and donations from Gorleston-based estate agent Darby and Liffen.
