Charity Chief Executive Peter Bullock said: "The money raised from this walk will help us keep providing vital support to thousands of vulnerable or isolated older people right across our region.

"Hopefully, this will be the first of many such fund-raising walks".

Last year more than 7,200 older people used the charity's Information & Advice service for help with problems and worries.

Four-hundred-and-fifty people enjoyed social activity groups and the charity's Ageing Well Team ran 29 regular exercise groups. Hospital discharge workers helped hundreds of people get back on their feet after periods of illness or trauma.
