Three teenagers from the Whitby area recently completed a cost-to-coast walk for charity when they arrived in Robin Hood’s Bay.

Milly Luddington (14), from Glaisdale, and Iona Smith (14) and Abigail Millward (16), both from Robin Hood’s Bay, climbed mountains and ran through grassland and moors on their epic 192-mile journey from St Bee’s in Cumbria.

Milly’s auntie has a genetic disorder named Usher’s Syndrome and has been deaf since childhood.

Now an adult, her sight is beginning to fade as well, so Milly has seen firsthand the difficulties this represents.

She said: “Sense provides important services to people who are deafblind.

“Without their support, many would be isolated in their own homes and that’s why I want to help Sense by fund-raising.”

“Milly, Iona and Abi are an inspiration to us all,” said community fund-raiser for Sense, Ruth Kilcullen, “They’ve really shown compassion and determination while raising vital funds for Sense.”

Have so far raised almost £300
