Teams from The Hotel Sheraton, The Cliffs and The Elgin Hotel, on The Queen’s Promenade, donned fancy dress while pushing their fully laden housekeeping trolleys 7km along the seafront.

It marks a rerun for The Hotel Sheraton team, headed up by the hotel’s head housekeeper Jeanette Lovatt, who this year led the charge dressed as 1970s Wonder Woman.

She said: “We had a fabulous time. The general public and tourists stopped for photographs with children and donated generously. This is the second year of the event and it was lovely to have the support of the Cliffs Hotel and The Elgin who also put in a great amount of effort.”

The proceeds will be divided between Blackpool children’s charity Boathouse Youth and Warwickshire-based cancer support charity Molly Ollys.
