"Stride out or take your time, make the most of the fantastic coastal scenery and attractions along the way, and at the same time your help will benefit the less fortunate.

"Please come along and support The Hinge Centre."

Walkers of all abilities have the choice of setting out on two routes for Sunday's event - both are wheelchair and pushchair friendly.

The three-mile Silver Walk begins at either the Ship Inn at Sewerby or South Shore Car Park, followed by a stroll to the Harbour and back.
