St Catherine’s Hospice is taking supporters to Cumbria for the famous Morecambe Bay Walk fundraiser this July

Walkers are invited to uncover natural landscapes and scenic views at Morecambe Bay with St Catherine’s Hospice.

This summer, the Lostock Hall charity is looking for volunteers to take to the sands and wade through the waters of the Bay for a good cause.

All the family are welcome to take on the famous eight-mile-trek on Sunday 8 July 2018.

Funds raised in sponsorship will go towards helping the hospice deliver vital services for people in the community affected by serious illness, enabling them to enjoy quality of life and have dignity in death.

Head of community engagement at St Catherine’s, Emma Jacovelli, said: “The Morecambe Bay Walk is always a popular event and a great day out for everyone.

“It’s a charity trek with a difference – it’s not too strenuous, but involves tackling everything from soft sands to knee-deep water.

“We’re providing return transport from the hospice, which will drop walkers off at the starting point in Arnside and collect the group from the finish line at Kents Bank.

“Funds raised in sponsorship will help us continue providing specialist care for people with life-shortening illnesses at the hospice and in their own homes.”

The walk, which was due to take place in September last year, had to be cancelled due to adverse weather conditions.

Registration is just £10 for adults and £5 for children, and the return transport is £10 per person.

You can sign up by calling 01772 629171 or visiting St Catherine’s website.
