Residents at The Mayfield Care Home celebrated the 200th birthday of the RNLI by walking 73 miles and raising £170.

Residents at The Mayfield Care Home made the most of the slightly better weather in April and took part in a series of walks to fundraise for the RNLI givens its 200th birthday. Some residents undertook shorter walks in the picturesque gardens of The Mayfield. Sometimes the weather threatened to derail their regular progress, but as one of the residents said, “we’re not made of sugar”, and they persevered with their regular walks.

Other residents and family members undertook longer walks (3 miles+) around Whitby and along the West Cliff. There was the occasional obligatory coffee stop along the way!

Having competed the walks, The Mayfield invited RNLI volunteers to visit so that General Manager Natalie Gill could hand over the sponsorship and donations of £170. Everyone enjoyed tea and cake with RNLI volunteers Neil and Howard, who were introduced to The Mayfield's nine intrepid walkers.
