Take part in the Morecambe Bay walk for the Blue Skies Hospitals Fund, which supports Blackpool Teaching Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust. This is your opportunity to take part in the iconic cross Bay walk with the wonderful Queen's Guide to the Sands, Cedric Robinson MBE. Family, friends, children, dogs (on a lead please) and groups are all welcome.

Crossing Morecambe Bay is an unforgettable experience which can only be undertaken with an experienced guide. This famous walk is approximately 8 miles long and should take about 4 hours to complete, depending on the route taken and progress on the day. It starts at the pretty and picturesque promenade of Arnside and takes approximately 3 – 4 hours. The route affords plenty of panoramic views of the surrounding Lakeland hills and those of Lancashire and Yorkshire. The walk covers 8 – 8½ miles with the first 1½ miles along the beach covering rocky ground, path and roads and then moves onto the sands at White Creek. During the walk you will cross the River Kent channel and you will get wet!

Blue Skies Hospitals Fund fundraises to support and enhance treatment provided by Blackpool Teaching Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust. Through your generosity and support they can make the grey skies blue for the community in their care. Blue Skies aim to make the experience and care of patients, their families and friends as comfortable as possible by providing enhanced facilities and equipment.

The award-winning Trust operates across a large area spanning Lancashire and South Cumbria. Their staff support a population of 1.6 million and Blue Skies fundraise alongside and with them, as well as in the community to support those extras that make a difference for patients. Your generosity can make a huge difference to the community and to the people who provide the care, research and holistic support that they deserve.
