More than 100 people have taken part in a sponsored coastal walk in support of a hospital that performed a heart operation on a Bradwell baby.
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.
