Starting at 8.00am on Saturday 9th June at Paddock Park in Worle, volunteers from our fantastic team here at West Country Parks will be walking a total of 27.4 miles as we visit each of our 9 Holiday and Residential Parks in order to raise funds for two brilliant local charities; BARB Search and Rescue and In Charley’s Memory. We will also be supporting Hillview Juvenile Carnival Club.
BARB operate two life-saving rescue hoverboats and an inshore rescue boat in the Bridgwater Bay Area and rely solely on donations to operate. Unlike other rescue groups, all of BARB’s members are volunteers, so every penny raised goes towards rescues, training and maintaining equipment.
Based in Burnham-on-Sea, ‘In Charley’s Memory’ was founded in memory of Charley Marks, who took his own life in September 2014. The charity works to support young people with mental health issues by raising the profile of mental health, making support services more accessible, advancing education surrounding mental health and providing support to the network of people around those with mental health conditions.
