Help us raise funds to buy a new basket swing for Allithwaite playground by joining a sponsored walk across Morecambe Bay led by the official Queen’s Guide to the Sands, Cedric Robinson MBE! The walk, from Arnside to Kents Bank is to be held on Sunday, 11th May at 3.30pm.
We lost our wonderful swing back in the February storms when it was crushed by the largest tree in the playground. It was a great favourite of local and visiting children of all ages and we have started fundraising in earnest to raise the £2,000 needed to replace it as soon as possible.
Crossing the sands with the Queen’s Guide is an amazing experience. The length of the walk varies from 6 – 8 miles depending on the route Cedric takes that day. You should expect to get wet up to your knees – or higher depending on how tall you are! The walk is suitable for anyone who feels comfortable walking for 3 – 4 hours. Dogs are also more than welcome if kept under control.
The registration fee for all participants is £10 per adult, £5 per child (under 16) and £2 per dog. Children under 16 must be accompanied. If you are able to raise additional sponsorship for your walk this would be greatly appreciated. You could even ask people to sponsor your dog!
