WALK this way for a good cause.

Over the years, a group of friends from Hogan’s bar, in Southwick, have raised thousands of pounds for the Peter David Lane Trust Fund with their walking club.

Their latest venture saw them take on the challenge of four piers.

They put their best foot forward from Blyth Lighthouse to St Mary’s Lighthouse, in Whitley Bay, on to Souter Lighthouse, in Marsden, and finishing at Roker Pier.

Money raised by their feat will go to the trust’s chosen charity for the year, the RNLI.

Julie Reay, of Barnes, who set up the trust in memory of her son, said: “I would like to send my heartfelt thanks to them all, their commitment to Peter’s fund is outstanding.

“I am very proud of each and every one of them and of course, all the staff and customers of Hogan’s who are so very generous with their cash, supporting these lads with their sponsor forms.”

l The Peter David Lane Trust Fund is hosting a charity night in aid of the RNLI at the Jolly Potter, South Hylton, on Friday.
