EAST Anglia’s Children’s Hospices received a £700 boost from a Wisbech optical assistant who completed a week-long, 100-mile trek along the south coast.
Katy Joly, an assistant at the Specsavers store in Wisbech, raised £700 when she joined walkers to walk from Bournemouth to Exeter earlier this year.
This week she presented a cheque to Karen Newton, from East Anglia’s Children Hospices.
Ms Joly said: “I really enjoyed the challenge of the trek and enjoyed raising money for such a worthwhile cause.
“It really is one of the biggest challenges I faced and I am pleased that I had the backing from my colleagues in store.”
