cedric_robinson_galloways.jpgJoin Galloways Society for the Blind and Queen's Appointed Guide Cedric Robinson for their 33rd sponsored walk across Morecambe Bay on Saturday 14th or Sunday 15th May 2016. Cedric Robinson has been leading walks across the Morecambe sands for fifty-three years and is renowned as having led thousands of people safely across the dangerous crossing.

The nine mile walk is one of the country's most popular and scenic. It starts from the picturesque promenade of Arnside and ends at Kents Bank near Grange. It takes around 3 hours to complete with panoramic views of the Lakeland hills and those of Lancashire and Yorkshire. The walk will raise funds to support Galloway's Society for the Blind's work with more than 7,000 blind and partially sighted people. Last year the two Morecambe Bay walks raised over £30,000.

Family, friends, children and dogs are all welcome. Places are limited and return transport is on offer from a number of pickups. For further information and to book places, contact Galloway's on 01772 744148 or email fundraising(at) Please state on which day you would prefer to walk. Or book online; Visit Facebook page.
