Cornish Coastal Challenge

Cornish Coastal Challenge

Walk for Independent Age

This beautiful weekend trek follows the dramatic coastline of North Cornwall. The landscapes are spectacular, with rugged cliffs, hidden coves and old fishing villages forming a beautiful backdrop to the blue sea. Starting at Harlyn Bay, west of Padstow, you'll walk for 24 hilly miles to St Agnes – a challenging distance considering the terrain. You'll pass the well-known beach stacks of Bedruthan Steps, as well as old reminders of Cornwall’s mining heritage, while Poldark fans will recognise some key filming locations, such as Holywell Bay, with the much-filmed Gull Rocks off-shore.

Sign up on the Discover Adventure website and select the date you would like to take part. The 2023 date options are: 12 - 14 May 2023 and 15 - 17 September 2023. Choose the fundraising option to pay a registration fee of £80 and commit to raising £660 for Independent Age.

Why support Independent Age?

The money you raise will support people like Veronica. Veronica is 82 years old and lives in the Southeast of England. She called our Helpline as she was struggling with rising electricity bills. Veronica was relying on extra jumpers when she was cold instead of turning on the heating, to keep down costs.

The Helpline helped Veronica to understand more about the money she was entitled to. Now, Veronica is receiving pension credit. This is a crucial top up for her income.

By fundraising for Independent Age, you will provide a support system for older people going through difficult times.
