Event description

Description

The Dorset and West Hampshire Local Network are having their fifth annual Sponsored Beach Walk!

Taking in the wonderful Bournemouth coastline from Bistro on the Beach at Southbourne to the Sandbanks Hotel, the level seven and a half mile stroll is a great opportunity to socialise with others affected by Crohn's and Colitis, their friends and family and the volunteers working for you in your local area. The Sponsored Beach Walk also helps to raise awareness of the conditions to people who may not have heard of them or the charity.

Once registered, you will also receive a link to our JustGiving page to circulate amongst your friends, families and supporters so that they can sponsor your endeavour.

All funds go directly to the Dorset and West Hampshire Network, allowing them to continue their fantastic work throughout the area. Recent funds have provided Poole, Bournemouth, Southampton and Lymington hospitals with resources, equipment and training to benefit the nurses, doctors and all IBD patients that access these hospitals.

FAQs

Who is the event for?

Everyone! This is a family-friendly event so all ages are welcome. The walk is 7.5 miles on flat surfaces so if you can do that – Please join us!

Does everyone need a ticket?

Please register everyone that you are intending to bring. A few extras on the day will be welcome but if you can let us know in advance it helps us in our planning of the event.

Do I have to wear my Crohn’s & Colitis UK t-shirt?

If you have one – yes please! The more visible we are, the higher our profile so we will be providing all walkers with purple Crohn’s & Colitis UK t-shirts for the event which you are encouraged to wear with pride! These will be handed out on arrival.

What are my parking options for getting to and from the event?

There is a large Pay & Display car park behind Bistro on the Beach, where the walk begins (BH6 4BT). As it is a straight walk, you may wish to invite someone to meet you at the end point – They are more than welcome to join our post-walk celebration at Sandbanks Hotel. Limited transport provided by the organisers is available but your own arrangements would be much appreciated.

Are dogs welcome?

All dogs must be kept on leads but the route is dog-friendly. They are unfortunately not allowed in the Sandbanks hotel but there is a patio that we use for the celebration if the weather is good and this area is suitable for all dogs.

Will photographs be taken?

Pictures will be taken on the day and used on our website, in our Newsletters and across social media. If you do not wish for your picture to be used in this way, please inform a volunteer on arrival and they will make sure you are not included in photos.

How can I contact the organiser with any questions?

Please emails networks@crohnsandcolitis.org.uk or call 01727 734475 with any queries about the event. On the day, our volunteers will be there to provide support, answer questions and make sure you don’t lose your way!
