Coppull company steps out for Rosemere

A team from Coppull property sales and lettings agency Home Truths crossed the Levens Estuary to help raise £8,000 for Rosemere Cancer Foundation as part of a 47-strong team of walkers.

The picturesque three-mile trek, guided by Raymond Potter and sponsored by Preston’s Eric Wright Group, set out from Canal Foot near Ulverston and finished at Sandgate Farm near Cark. It replaced this year’s annual Rosemere Cancer Foundation Cross Bay Walk from Arnside to Kents Bank, which was scheduled to take place in early June.

It was cancelled after Queens Guide and walk leader Cederic Robinson MBE declared the channels crossing the sands of Morecambe Bay unsafe following prolonged winter and spring rain. No alternative date was available so the Levens Estuary was chosen as an alternative route.

Dan Hill, Rosemere Cancer Foundation’s head of fundraising, said: “We are extremely grateful to Eric Wright Group, which transferred its sponsorship from the Cross Bay Walk to the Levens Estuary Walk, and to everyone who supported it either by doing it or by donating their original Cross Bay entry fee.

“It was disappointing our Cross Bay Walk had to be cancelled. It’s extremely popular. Our Levens walk though was just as scenic and a shorter distance so next year, we are planning to add it to our walks calendar. It includes Walk in the Dark that follows the A6 from Chorley and South Ribble Hospital to Rosemere Cancer Centre, the region’s specialist cancer treatment centre at the Royal Preston Hospital, and October’s Walk the Lights along Blackpool’s Illuminations strewn Prom. Providing we don’t have another very wet winter and spring, our Cross Bay will also be back.”
