Yearning to feel sand between your toes and the kiss of a sea breeze?Advertisement
Well yearn no more, as the Rosemere Cancer Foundation’s 2021 Cross Bay Walk will take place in real life as opposed to the virtual events from the past year, will take place on Sunday 6 June, from 3-15 pm.
Rosemere has an allocation of 300 places to fill and registration is open now!
Chief officer Dan Hill said: “There will of course be social distancing but as the walk is wholly outside, it should go ahead as planned.”
The iconic eight-mile Cross Bay Walk heads out from picturesque Arnside Pier to navigate the potentially treacherous but beautiful bay, the country’s largest expanse of intertidal mudflats and sand, to finish at Kents Bank Train Station.
The walk, which takes approximately four hours and is also suitable for children aged eight plus and for dogs, is one of only a handful of yearly fundraising events organised directly by Rosemere Cancer Foundation itself.

Dan added: “Crossing the Bay is something you can’t just go off and do by yourself. It’s too dangerous so you have to join an organised group and there are only certain times of the year when group crossings are possible.
“It’s a limited season and as there were no crossings at all last year because of the coronavirus pandemic, Michael is expecting a greater demand than usual this year from people wanting to make the traverse.”
Accompanying Rosemere Cancer Foundation walkers this year will be supporters of Lancashire Teaching Hospitals Charity and another Royal Preston Hospital based charity Baby Beat, which both have 75 places each to fill.
