Danielle Austin and Jess Russon, of the Wuff on Walks dog walking business, raised the impressive amount by doing a sponsored cycle ride along the Hart to Haswell Walkway and taking part in a local Tough Mudder obstacle course event.

Danielle said: "The RNLI are an inspiration to all of us. They go out to sea risking their own lives to save others and they have had a really busy year.

"I would like to say thank you to all our sponsors and to the RNLI volunteers for their dedication."
