Take part in the Morecambe Bay walk and help raise vital funds for Queenscourt Hospice, which provides support for the people of Southport, Formby and West Lancs.

Meeting at Queenscourt Hospice at 11.30am, the coach will arrive at Arnside in good time to start the walk at 14.15pm. The Morecambe Bay walks are led by Cedric Robinson MBE, the Queens Guide, and will cross the sands following the old coach routes. Starting at the stony foreshore in Arnside, the walk proceeds across the channels of the River Kent and ends in beautiful Kents Bank. The length of the walk varies between 6-8 miles depending on Cedric’s route on the day, taking approximately 3-4 hours.

Queenscourt Hospice Morecambe Bay Walk

The walk excitingly involves wading through channels and crossing gullies on the saltmarsh. This can be slippery and difficult terrain. Walkers need to be agile and of reasonable fitness to attempt the walk and have stout walking shoes. Never attempt to cross the bay without a respected local guide. Tables have been reserved at a lovely local pub, The Pheasant Inn, for a well-earned meal after the walk and the coach will collect walkers from there. (The meal is not included in the entry fee).

The entry fee is £20.00 per person, covering coach travel, the guided walk and all admin. If you do not require transport, the fee is £15.00, but please note that this will require organising your own transfer from Kents Bank back to your car at Arnside. This walk has been organised to help raise vital funds for Queenscourt Hospice. Please raise as much sponsorship as you can, from family, friends and colleagues, in support of the challenge you’re undertaking. Thank you and enjoy the walk!
