2024 Wild Beach Walk

June 9 @ 10:00 am 6:00 pm

Join us in raising money for sick, injured and orphaned wildlife with a walk on the dramatic stretch of beach between Burnham-on-Sea and Brean. This popular fundraising walk is back for another year with options for all ages and abilities.

Starting from The Ritz Social Club in Burnham-on-Sea, you can sign up to walk either:

  • Burnham Beach Lighthouse and return – approx. 1.7 miles
  • Berrow Beach Café and return – approx. 6.8 miles
  • Brean Down National Trust Café and return – approx. 12.3 miles

Here’s a handy map showing the route (click to enlarge):

There are a couple of ways you can get involved. Either pay £5 for your place, or sign up for free and try to raise money with no minimum sponsorship. Everyone gets a free bottle of water and a finishing certificate.

This is a family-friendly event and sponsored dogs are very welcome. Fancy dress encouraged, let’s try to fill the beach with colourful and wacky outfits! If you want to fundraise as a group, you just need the lead person to register and let us know how many you’re bringing on the day.

Toilets are available at The Ritz, and on the walk there are public toilets at Berrow Beach (underneath Sundowner Café) and at the National Trust Brean Down Café.

There are a few public pay and display car parks in Burnham-on-Sea:

  • Oxford Street Car Park, opposite Lidl, roughly 5 minute walk, £5.50 all day
  • High Street Car Park, roughly 8 minute walk, £6.10 all day
  • Pier Street Long Stay Car Park, by B&M, roughly 9 minute walk, £6.10 all day. Please note this is next to a short stay car park, check signs before parking

On the day, please make your way to The Ritz Social Club to sign-in between 10am and 11am. We’ll collect your sponsorship money and forms and answer any questions you have.

Once you’re signed up, we’ll send you a sponsorship form and our special JustGiving event link so you can accept online donations. Please don’t start fundraising until you’ve heard from us!

If you don’t do online registrations, you can pop into our charity shop in Burnham-on-Sea for a sponsorship form.

Alternatively, email david.plant@secretworld.org with your name, distance, and contact number, or call David on 01278 768706.

A big thank you to The Ritz Social Club for supporting this event for another year. Be sure to pop in for a drink on your way home!
