The Sunflower Walk, a 16 mile coastal walk raising money for St Michael’s Hospice.

The Walk will take place on Saturday July 14 beginning at Eastbourne Pier and ending at St Michael’s Hospice itself.

The Walk is organised by local couple Hannah & Harry Hildreth, and to date it has raised over £9,000 for the Hospice.

This year they are aiming to push that total over the £10,000 mark.

Organiser Hannah Hildreth said: ‘I first organised the Walk in memory of my Mother Sarah Burnell, who passed away at the Hospice in February 2015.

The Hospice gave her and us such an incredible level of care, and we really feel that they are an invaluable part of the local community. We’re extremely grateful to everyone who has taken part in the Walk so far, and helped us raise such vital funds for the Hospice’
