Proposed Sponsored Coast to Coast Walk for Spring 2017

A group of Derbyshire Carers Association staff, volunteers and other supporters are planning a coast to coast walk along the historic Hadrian’s Wall route raising funds for local carers.

The 84 mile [135 km] route begins in the west from Bowness-on-Solway past Roman forts and settlements finally ending in Wallsend on the east coast. This dramatic trail has stunning views, varied terrain and takes in areas of outstanding natural beauty. The group ambitiously propose to complete the route over 5 days, walking in excess of 16 miles per day, stopping to camp along the way.

It is hoped this and other events planned for 2017 will not only raise awareness of the work Derbyshire Carers Association does, but also enable us to fund many more events for carers.

What could this event fund?
£50 – 8 carers spending and hour bowling
£100 – 10 carers to attend a pottery decorating session
£200 – 21 carers entry to Chatsworth at Christmas
£500 – 25 carers to attend a relaxation and therapy day
£885 – 3 carers a Monday – Saturday break in and ensuite room with breakfast at the Kiloran Trust in London.
