Enjoy a walk beside the seaside to help transform cancer care

EVERYONE loves a walk beside the seaside and next month you can enjoy some hearty exercise or a gentle stroll, while raising money for The Clatterbridge Cancer Charity.  Crosby Coastal Park will be the venue for the annual fundraiser, on Sunday, 11 June 2017, starting at 10am.

Everyone can take part in either the 5k or 8k walk, whether it's to celebrate a life, remember a loved one or just enjoy time at the beach with family and friends. As well as being a chance to stride out for a brilliant cause:- 'The Clatterbridge Cancer Charity Beside the Seaside Walk' will once again give dog lovers the chance to show off their four legged friends in the Pooch Parade.

So while walkers are raising much needed cash for the New Cancer Hospital Appeal, their pets can win prizes. The contest is even bigger and better this year and prizes will be awarded for Best in Show, Ultimate Cutie and Clatterbridge Mascot. The winner of each category will win a super prize and all entrants will receive a gift.  Elsewhere there will be live music, and as you head towards the finish line there is a chance to stop and grab a bucket and spade and add a message of hope to your sandcastle. Entry for the walk is just:- ₤5 for adults and children aged 10 and over. Entry into the Pooch Parade is:- ₤5.

As an added bonus, everyone who takes part in the walk has the chance to win a prize for being the highest fundraiser. Canine Cottages have kindly donated a ₤250 voucher to spend on a cottage holiday of your choice. That's a prize to set tails wagging.

The New Cancer Hospital Appeal needs to raise ₤15 million towards the building of a specialist facility in Liverpool City Centre, to treat patients from Merseyside, Cheshire and surrounding areas. The 11 floor Hospital will treat both in patients and out patients and will also be a centre of excellence for research.

Katrina Bury, Head of The Clatterbridge Cancer Charity, said:- "This walk is a brilliant way to have fun beside the seaside while raising funds to help transform cancer care. All the proceeds will go towards our New Cancer Hospital Appeal, a once in a generation chance to build a Specialist Centre, in Liverpool, to fight this terrible disease. What can be better than a walk along the gorgeous Merseyside coastline that helps fund cancer treatment and research at the same time?"
