Morecambe Bay Walk cancelled for supporters’ safety

Unfortunately we are having to cancel this weekend’s Morecambe Bay Walk fundraiser due to unsafe sand conditions caused by the recent bad weather.

Our director of community and income, Lorraine Charlesworth, explains: “It is with regret that we have to cancel this weekend’s Morecambe Bay Walk, but the safety of our supporters is our main priority.

“Morecambe Bay is notorious for its quicksand, which is why we always enlist the expertise of the Queen’s Guide to the Sands, Cedric Robinson MBE, to lead the route. He has confirmed today that due to heavy rain earlier this week, it is simply not safe to go ahead with the event, as the sands are full of water and the rivers are flowing too high to cross.

“We’d like to thank everyone who has signed up this year – we have been delighted with the amazing support we’ve received, and are incredibly disappointed at having to cancel.

“We trust people will understand that this decision is unavoidable, and we will reschedule the Morecambe Bay Walk for some time in 2018. We’ll keep our supporters updated about that when we have more details.”
