The Northampton RNLI inaugural May Day Welly Walk took place at Pitsford Water on Sunday, May 17.

More than 80 people gathered at Brixworth Country Park to take part.

Jeff Sutherland-Kay, chairman of the RNLI’s Northampton branch, said: “All walkers received a RNLI Wellies pin badge as they set off and an RNLI medal when they completed the walk. We won’t know how much we raised until all the individual sponsorship money has been collected. The costs were covered by sponsorship, so every penny raised will go to the RNLI.”
