Galloway’s 2 day Morecambe Bay Walk set to return!

Local sight loss Charity, Galloway’s Society for the Blind, have today launched the return of their famous Morecambe Bay Walk and will be led by across the sands by Cedric Robinson MBE on the 04th and 05th August – making them the only charity to have two exclusive days.

Galloway’s can take  500 walkers on eachday and over the years, the event has raised over £500,000 – going a long way to support more blind and partially sighted people.

Charlotte Carnell, Fundraiser at Galloway’s commented, “There are over 50,000 people living in the Sefton and Lancashire area who are affected by sight loss. The Morecambe Bay Walk is Galloway’s flagship event that draws people from all over the country to take part. All money raised at the Morecambe Bay Walk will help Galloway’s provide life-changing support.

The Morecambe Bay Walk is happening over two days Saturday 04th August starting at 10.30and again on Sunday 05th starting at 11.00am. We will be starting in Arnside and the walk is expected to take between 3 and 4 hours, finishing in  Kents Bank.  More details and registration can be done either by visiting or calling 01772 744148. Galloway’s also offers a transport service for people wanting transport from the Preston/Chorley and Morecambe area to and from the event. This needs to be booked

Nathan Scanlon, who took part in the Galloway’s Bay Walk a few years ago, commented, “I’d heard the Morecambe Bay Walk was one of those bucket list events that everybody should experience, so I signed myself and my daughter up to join Galloway’s. I had no idea what to expect, but Galloway’s were brilliant at letting us know what the event would entail, what we should bring on the day and even advised on what we should wear! I used their transport service which made travelling to and from the bay walk really simple.

We both had the most amazing day, my daughter Evie absolutely loved it. The atmosphere from start to finish was brilliant. It was tough in parts, but the Galloway’s team and other walkers really got behind everybody. And we were able to raise £100 in sponsorship which will make a real difference to the charity. I’d urge anybody to do the Morecambe Bay Walk if they haven’t already, a fantastic day for the whole family for a very worthy cause.” Galloway’s supports over 7,000 blind and partially sighted people across Sefton and Lancashire, at any point during someone’s sight loss journey, whether that be at the point of diagnosis or being encouraged to live independently.
