2013 Sunset Coastal Walk Announced


THE Pink Ladies Sunset Coastal Walk is back this year and will take place on Saturday 22 June.

Walk organisers Doreen Le Poidevin and Amanda Brown are both founder members of the local breast cancer support group and said the event was not just about raising money but also raising awareness.

The Sunset Walk was launched in 2007 and is held every two years. In 2011, around £92,000 was raised by just under 2,000 walkers.
‘It would be great if we could raise around the same amount of money,’ Mrs Le Poidevin said. ‘And hopefully we can get as many ladies walking it as possible.’

All money raised stays in the island and helps with everything from the breast care unit to paying for home help for those recovering from treatment.
The walk will finish with a party in Market Square, where Cafe Bon Port will provide food and drink for walkers and entertainment from Abba tribute band Sensation.

There are two walking routes again this year. The first starts at Grandes Rocques car park at 6pm and is approximately 10.5 miles long. The second is roughly 3.5 miles and starts at 8pm at Bordeaux, participants being joined by those from the first walk before going on to the finish line in Town.

All ages are welcome but an adult must accompany children.
