Like Tech who provide vital electronic and software support to the power generation industry voted NWAA as their partners due to the incredible work they do for the bay area.

A sea of yellow tops could be seen marching the sandy shores of Morecambe Bay from Arnside to Grange-Over-Sands.

It was an incredible event blessed with glorious weather.

Kate Houlden, managing director of Like Technologies, said: “Every year our team vote for which local charity they would like to support and I am delighted with this year’s choice. To think that the NWAA doesn’t receive any government or NHS funding and relies on the efforts of fundraisers and events like the Cross Bay Walk is astonishing.

“We are proud to provide even the smallest of support we can to the charity over the next year and I know our team have some fun fundraising ideas up their sleeves.”
