Turn the tide on meningitis

23rd June 2018

Stride out for a stroll with a difference – an eight-mile sponsored walk across the sands of Morecambe Bay – and raise funds for us at the same time

Morecambe Bay

The walk, led by the Queen’s Guide to the Sands, Cedric Robinson, starts at the Arnside Promenade at 9.45am on Sunday 2 September and makes its way across the bay, arriving at Kents Bank Station, Grange-over-Sands, about four hours later. 

Cedric has been leading walkers safely across the Bay since 1963 and knows the ever-shifting sands like the back of his hand – so you’ll be in safe hands! And en route he’ll be able to point out wildlife and other features of interest.

Bring the dog too

Elaine Close, our Community Fundraiser in the North West, said, “We’d love you to join us for this walk and everyone is welcome, including the family dog. It will be a great day out for all the family."

“Every penny raised will help us fight the disease on all fronts – through funding pioneering preventative research, raising awareness and supporting survivors and their families.” 

Registration costs £10 for adults, £5 for children and £2 for dogs. Although raising sponsorship is not compulsory supporters are encouraged to raise as much money as possible to help those affected by the disease.

To find out more and sign up have a look at our Morecambe Bay event page or email elainec@meningitisnow.org.  

Walkers are encouraged to pre-register rather than just turn up on the day as places are limited.
