Walk across Morecambe Bay and give youngsters their own life-changing outdoor experience

Walkers are invited to cross the UK’s biggest expanse of tidal mudflats and sand, Morecambe Bay, to give youngsters a life-changing outdoor experience.

Local youth charity Brathay Trust says anyone signing up with them for a cross-bay walk with Cedric Robinson on Saturday 6 May will be raising funds for their Changing Horizons Appeal. It gives local youngsters, who have had a very difficult start in life, a residential experience aimed at providing them with a new perspective on their lives.

As Brathay Fundraiser Julia Wilson explained:

We hope one unique outdoor experience will lead to another with this fundraiser. Encourage friends and family to join you and sign up via our website

Tickets are £10 for an adult and £5 for a child.

The walk sets off from Arnside on Saturday 6th May at 2.15pm (for a 2.45pm departure). The eight mile walk, which takes around three and half hours to complete, ends at Kents Bank railway station near Grange-over-Sands.
