Would you consider spending a weekend walking across Cornwall with us?

We are suggesting supporters may like to walk the Cornish "Coast to Coast for Barrett's" over the weekend of 2nd to 4th June 2017 on a challenge provided by Discover Adventure
It will involve 2 days of walking and 2 nights camping. All carrying, setting up tents etc, is done for you and all meals provided. It is escorted by expert guides and an enjoyable experience. (Discover Adventure provided the Cycle Burma trip undertaken by Chris recently.)

If you can raise a minimum of £550 in sponsorship, it will only cost you the £75 deposit required to book your place and at least half of your sponsorship will go to Barrett's Wesssex (or other chosen charity). Or you may prefer to pay the £275 cost of the weekend yourself whence the whole amount of any funds you may raise will go to the charity (though there's no obligation to raise any).

We are hoping to inaugurate a patient support group for the West Country (based on Plymouth) in 2017. This walk could help publicise that new group whilst raising awareness. - Half a dozen walkers in specially provided T-shirts would, hopefully, attract attention!

Contact Chris ( if you have any questions.
