The South West Coast Path Association is offering charity walkers a new way to save valuable time and money

A healthy walk along the Jurassic coast can help worthy causes keep their financies in good shape.

Trekking the South West Coast Path is a popular way to raise money for many charity groups.

But with each of them having to carry out the same administrative tasks it reduces the time they can spend on pulling in the cash.

So now the South West Coast Path Association (SWCPA ) is offering fund raisers a new way to save valuable time and money by taking part in their Great South West Walk next spring.

For the £60 cost of a “golden bond” charity groups will have all the administration taken care of for them, so they can focus on attracting walkers to raise funds.

Chairman of the Great South West Walk, Ken Carter explained: “Throughout the year we see various charities benefitting from walks around the South West coast path and the organisation involved is considerable. With our Great South West Walk everything is in place for the charities - from posters and registration forms to the website and the entry system. We will also deal with issues such as transport and insurance for walkers – leaving charities to just focus on the task of engaging supporters for their own cause.

“The £60 from each golden bond will help cover our costs, as well as raise some funds towards our own target of £250,000 for the coast path itself.”

Golden bonds must be purchased by February 1, and each charity’s walkers must be registered with the SWCPA by February 18..

Charities are welcome to get involved with just one or several legs of the walk with the cost of a bond for one leg being £60 and then £10 for each extra leg.

For more information, or to discuss the golden bond places, please contact the SWCPA on swcpteam@devon.gov.uk

* The Great South West Walk, which celebrates the SWCPA’s 40th anniversary, takes place next April/May and will consist of a series of sponsored walks which have been broken down into 56 legs.
