Employees from Specsavers in Hove swapped their work shoes for hiking boots recently when they took part in the south coast Mighty Hike, raising over £500 for MacMillan Cancer Support.

A tough challenge

The hike saw Specsavers opticians Sarah Edwards and Dale Smith battle the elements to cross the finish line on Saturday 10 June after an early 8am start. The route stretched from Brighton to Eastbourne along the stunning South Downs Way, and took in views of Britain’s finest unspoilt coastline from the chalk cliffs of Seven Sisters Country Park.

Committed to local fundraising

Charles Forshaw, store director at Specsavers in Hove, says: ‘Sarah and Dale have done us proud, raising much needed funds for those affected by cancer. It was a fantastic event, well done to both – you are an inspiration!’
