Discovering the joys of walking and the natural beauty of the area has led to a small group of walkers to plan a 20-mile walk to fundraise for a local charity.
The aptly named Chalk Walk has been organised by Stuart Brown and Alistair Sweeney from Bridlington who have been walking routes around the area for the past 15 months.
Stuart has organised the event for the 26th June and will be fundraising for the Bridlington CYP (Club for Young People).
Already, around 50 walkers have signed up for the challenge, which can be completed in sections of five or ten-mile walks or undertaken as a complete circuit.
“So far everyone has purchased a T-shirt with 100% of the profits going to the CYP.” said Stuart.
“I would like to think that we can raise over £400 – we raised £1,804 last summer bye completing the Yorkshire Three Peaks walk.”
The 20-mile Chalk Walk will start from the Coastguard Station on Limekiln Lane and will cover a route around the headland, ending up at The Ship Inn, Sewerby.
“At present we are at full capacity for the first section. We wanted to limit our walkers to a manageable and relatively safe number because we have to walk on roads during the early part of the route.
“However, we would still love more walkers to join us as we get to the cliffs at Speeton. The half-way point of our loop is at Bempton, so if you fancy a stunning 10-mile hike back to Sewerby then that is a great point to join us.” added Alistair
