Fundraisers at local charity Stick ‘n’ Step are appealing for people to step up and step out on this year’s Wirral Coastal Walk to help them raise funds. The charity provides free conductive education to children with cerebral palsy, which encourages confidence, independence and mobility.

Stick ‘n’ Step takes part in the famous walk every year and this year hopes to field its biggest team so far, with a target of attracting more than 200 people to its walking team.

The annual event, organised by the Rotary Club of North Wirral, will take place on Sunday 18 June. Covering 15 miles of coastal path, the route starts from Seacombe Ferry and ends at Wirral Country Park Visitor Centre at Thurstaston. Options of shorter distances are available with alternative completion points after four and ten miles.

Hettie Miles, Corporate and Community Fundraiser, Stick ‘n’ Step, said, “We hope lots of people will come and join us on this remarkable event to help us raise money for children across the region. It’s a great day out and with the different distances available, it’s very suitable for all ages and abilities.”

To take part in the 2017 Wirral Coastal Walk to raise money for Stick ‘n’ Step, please contact Hettie Miles on 0151 638 0888 or email
