Sight loss charity Galloway’s is ready to make up for lost time by launching its famous Morecambe Bay Walk, spreading over two days this summer.
The charity will devote a weekend to the iconic fundraiser, which will take place on Saturday July 31st and Sunday August 1st.
The eight-mile walks will be led by the Guide to the Sands, Michael Wilson, starting at 10.45am on Saturday and 11.30am on Sunday. Both start in Arnside and end in Kents Bank.
Galloway’s can take 800 walkers across the weekend and over the years, the event has raised thousands of pounds.
Charlotte Carnell, events fundraiser at Galloway’s, said: “This year, we know there is a real buzz about communities getting together after events like this were postponed last year.
“So we are very excited to be able to get this walk up and running again as we know that many people are keen to join us. We have had so much support over the years for this walk and we can’t wait to welcome everyone back. We also wish to thank our sponsor Frank Whittle Partnership Ltd, who has supported this event for seven years.
“We are working hard to ensure that the walk can take place safely and will comply with any Government guidelines in place at the time.
“The walk in 2019 raised more than £16,000 which helped us to continue to support local blind and partially sight people in Lancashire and Sefton and so we can’t wait to raise more money this year.”
The Queen’s Guide to the Sands, Michael Wilson said: “The walk this year will be even more momentous as we know it means so much to everyone.
“Galloway’s does amazing work in supporting people with sight loss and I can’t wait to meet the army of fundraisers once again as they take on this annual walk. With two dates to choose from, there are plenty of spaces, so why not sign up today?”
A spokesman from Frank Whittle Partnership Ltd said: “Galloway’s is an incredible charity and we are more than happy to continue supporting its Morecambe Bay Walk. It is such a fantastic event and we would encourage people to sign up.”
