We’re delighted to share our recent involvement in the Weston Hospice Moonlight Beach Walk. Six of our Responders convened at the pier for an initial briefing at 18:00, before driving along the 5km and 10km walking routes. Our team was hands-on, removing debris like driftwood and filling holes to ensure the path was safe for all participants.
Due to an exceptionally high tide, a slight amendment was made to the route following a final briefing with the event organiser. Our team was positioned at various checkpoints along the way, some at sparkler points, others offering refreshments, and a few more at the turning points for each distance. A safety vehicle was also on hand to follow the last group of walkers.
Registration kicked off at 21:00, and the first wave of intrepid participants took to the cold, windy beach at 22:00 for their 10km walk. By the time the last walker had crossed the finish line, it was around 01:00, and our dedicated team headed home.
A massive thank you to everyone who participated in this annual charity event. We look forward to being a part of it again next year!
