Take on the Super Sands Walks Challenge for Bay Hospitals charity

Cross bay walk

[L]ocal families and businesses are urged to take part in a Super Sands Walk weekend to raise much needed funds in support of local hospitals charity.

Local legend and Queen’s official guide, Cedric Robinson MBE, will be leading around 300 intrepid walkers across eight miles of sands on the Cross Bay Walk to raise money for Bay Hospitals Charity. This annual sponsored walk takes place on Saturday 7 July 2018, starting at 12pm (registration opens at 11am) from Arnside and ends at Kents Bank.

If a shorter walk is for you, then you will enjoy the Piel Island Walk on Sunday 8 July 2018, led by expert guide John Murphy. Walkers will stroll along the sands to Piel Island and Castle where John will explain the history of this beautiful area. The route starts at Snab Point, Walney, at 11am (registration opens at 10.30am) and ends at the same location.

For those more adventurous walkers, why not try both!

Piel Island Walk

Bay Hospitals Charity is a registered charity, raising money to improve patient care and hospital experience at University Hospitals of Morecambe Bay NHS Foundation Trust hospitals.  Every day incredible things happen across our hospitals, but this is not without cost. By donating to Bay Hospitals Charity you can fund the latest equipment and help make your local hospitals more comfortable, ensuring you get the best possible care and treatment.

Paula Richardson, Head of Charities and Fundraising, Bay Hospitals Charity, said: “The Cross Bay and Piel Island walks are a fabulous way to raise money for your local hospitals, which we all love. As the NHS turns 70 on 5 July, this is a great way to celebrate, keep fit and give a little back.

“I would like to thank both our expert guides Cedric and John in advance. They have been supporting our walks for many years between them and you will be in very capable hands.”
