Trekkers celebrate on Seaton beach after reaching landmark figure

A weekly walk launched 18 years ago has now raised £25,000 for the Devon Air Ambulance Trust (DAAT).

Every Friday, a group of supporters meet in different locations throughout East Devon and trek for five miles through the beautiful countryside, enjoying the surroundings and good company.

They have been meeting weekly since 1997 and, during that time have raised more than £25,000 for the trust.

Each week, a different walker plans the route ensuring that they always go somewhere different. The money is collected at the end of each walk and as it builds up it is donated towards DAAT. The £25,000 mark was reached during a walk at Seaton beach.
