Walk this way

The race is on to find people to take part in the annual Wirral Coastal Walk - and raise some money for local charities.

One of them, The Clatterbridge Cancer Charity, made a direct appeal to listeners of the Coffee Club.

Events manager Sam Archibald popped into the studio to tell presenter Steve Evans all about the walk.

This year's fundraiser takes place on Sunday 12th June, starting at Seacombe ferry terminal between 8.30 and 11am.

"We're looking to get 100 people walking for The Clatterbridge Cancer Charity this year. We could do a lot with the money raised from that." - Sam Archibald, The Clatterbridge Cancer Charity

The 15-mile walk takes in some breath-taking scenery and culminates with lives music to welcome the walkers past the finish line at Thurstaston.

Members of the Clatterbridge team will also be there to cheer on their fundraisers in their lime green t-shirts.

Walkers usually celebrate their achievement with an ice cream or take the weight off their feet with a picnic in the park.

"People walk for many different causes. What's beautiful about the event is the amount of money raised for all the different charities." - Sam Archibald, The Clatterbridge Cancer Charity

 

You can learn more about the event at the charity's website or pop into the charity office in Clatterbridge.

If 15 miles is too much, the new 5k or 8k Clatterbridge Wig Walk will be raising funds just for the Clatterbridge Cancer Charity on 17th April at Crosby Coastal Park.
