On Friday 30th September we are challenging you to join us walking from Broughton Ambulance Station/Control Room to RNLI Blackpool a 19.1 mile walk.
We will be meeting at the Marriott Hotel opposite Broughton Ambulance Head Quarters at 9am, this is to ensure we do not interrupt the daily running of the service, following photo opportunities we will be departing at 0915.
We will be travelling via Wesham Fire Station/Ambulance Station, as this is the halfway point we will arrange for refreshments to be provided for our team of walkers.
Following our stop at Wesham we will head towards Blackpool RNLI, where we will finish our walk - hopefully in a sunny Blackpool. Following completion of our walk we will be holding a reception to celebrate the good work of the Mind Blue Light Programme and the success of the Blue Light Walkers. The reception will be held at The Beach House Bistro & Bar in Blackpool where walkers will receive a champagne reception with canapés - please feel free to invite your friends and family along to the reception to celebrate with us. In the evening it is the World Fire Works Championship Final which is set to be a fantastic display - why not stay around Blackpool to watch the show.
Registration for the event is now open, a minimum registration fee of £8 is required which will cover a charitable donation and refreshments at the halfway point in Wesham, and a champagne reception at the Beach House Bistro. You can also upgrade your registration to receive a team t-shirt and/or a Blue Light Programme water bottle. Please feel free to encourage your friends and family to sponsor you via our Just Giving page or alternatively you can set your own up if you would prefer.
We have had a lot of interest in the special coach transfer available in the morning to help people get from Blackpool to Broughton. This will ensure we all have our cars positioned correctly - to save walking back! There will be an extra charge for the coach, if you are considering using this facility please get in touch with us at firstname.lastname@example.org and we will add you to our email list and update you with information as soon as it becomes available.
