Two days! Two walks! Two guides! On this year’s Galloway’s ramble across the famous Morecambe Bay sands.

Sight loss charity Galloway’s is devoting a summer weekend to its famous Morecambe Bay Walk fundraiser.

The 2022 event will take place on Saturday 20th and Sunday 21st August, with a different route each day. Both routes will include iconic views of Morecambe Bay, recently made famous by ITV drama ‘The Bay’.

The walk on Saturday will be a five-mile walk starting in Sandgate, Nr. Flookburgh, at 11.30am. Guide to the Sands, Raymond Porter will lead walkers out to the beautiful Chapel Island.

The walk on Sunday will begin in Arnside at 1pm. The 7-mile route will pass through the River Kent to end in Grange-over-Sands and will be led by Guide to the Sands, Michael Wilson.

Up to 1,000 walkers can take place across the weekend. Participants will raise vital funds for Galloway’s work supporting blind and partially sighted people to live full and independent lives. Over the years, the event has raised tens of thousands of pounds for local people living with sight loss.

Charlotte Carnell, Events Coordinator at Galloway’s, said:

“We are so excited for people to experience the new Chapel Island route. Last year’s walks quickly sold out, so make sure you don’t miss out – sign up today!”

‘’We also wish to thank our sponsors Frank Whittle Partnership, who have supported this event for many years.’’

Guide to the Sands, Raymond Porter said:

“It will be fantastic to lead Galloway’s out to Chapel Island for their first time on this part of the Bay. The Island has a vast history and is home to a great array of birds, so there’s something for everyone to enjoy!’’

Guide to the Sands, Michael Wilson said:

‘‘I’m really looking forward to getting out on the Sands with Galloway’s for another unforgettable day crossing the River Kent. Raising funds for this important local charity is a highlight of our year.”

A spokesperson from event sponsor Frank Whittle Partnership said:

“Galloway’s is an incredible charity and we are delighted to continue supporting its Morecambe Bay Walk. We’ll be taking part on the day and hope to see you there!”
