Fundraisers still have time to register for Motability’s accessible walk along the Wirral in North West England. Motability, the national disability charity, is organisingWalkability to raise money for some of the most disadvantaged disabled people in the UK. Walkability will take place along the Wirral Way on Saturday 2 March 2013.
The 12 mile walk starts in Hooton and finishes in West Kirby, on the coast of the Wirral Peninsula. For those wishing to walk a shorter distance, there will be a 5.5 mile route ending in the coastal resort of Parkgate Village.
“This scenic route is accessible to everybody and offers wonderful views across the estuary to Wales,” said Aine Canavan, Corporate Accounts Executive at Motability.
“All fundraising efforts will greatly benefit disabled people who cannot afford the right car or adaptations for their needs, or to help young disabled people with driving lessons.”
The Wirral Way covers the route of the old Hooton to West Kirby railway line which closed in 1963. Having been recently renovated the paths are completely accessible which means that everyone can get involved, including wheelchair, scooter and powered wheelchair users.
Each participant will be asked to raise sponsorship and pay a £20 registration fee. Children can take part in Walkability with a registration fee of £10 each. The registration fee covers the cost of experienced guides, first aiders and a fundraising and information pack, which includes a Motability T-shirt. For a registration form and more information call 0845 166 8786 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
Motability’s charitable work aims to raise around £2.5 million each year to help some of the most disadvantaged disabled members of our communities, some of whom without this support would not be mobile.
