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:-

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?"
