The Great South West Walks 2014 is a celebration of the South West Coast Path taking place from 20th – 28th September 2014, with 100 popular circular walks focused around the Coast Path in Somerset, Dorset, Devon and Cornwall - 15 of them in South Devon AONB! Its aim is to raise vital funds through these sponsored walks which will to be used for improvements to the Coast Path and will help Children’s Hospice South West provide care and support to children who are living with life-limited conditions and their families in the South West.
Led by the charity, the South West Coast Path Association (SWCPA), there will be guided sponsored walks of various lengths, to suit all types of walkers. Many will be themed including wildlife, family friendly and historical walks.
Walkers are encouraged to raise sponsorship which will be equally split between SWCPA and CHSW. The sponsorship will enable SWCPA to lever in other funding and in total deliver over £250,000 for much needed improvements spread all along the Path.
