Steve, who works as a technician and walked along with his wife, Angie, raised just over £400 for St Johns Hospice in Wirral.
The walk started at Seacombe Ferry and took in
New Brighton, Leasowe, Meols, Hoylake, West Kirby and Caldy before finishing at . Thurstaston Country Park
Renault Wirral General Manager Mark Whitaker said: “I’ve very proud of the staff members who took part in the Wirral Coast Walk. They tell me it was very gruelling because of the strong winds but worth it for such deserving causes.”
