This weekend there’s a chance to join Active Coast and Responsible Fishing UK for a family fun ramble around Sewerby Cliffs, Danes Dyke, and Flamborough South Landing to help raise money for Children in Need.

This year, Children in Need’s mission is not only to raise as much money as possible and change children’s lives, but to collectively cover the distance of the whole UK, which is 18,505 miles.

The East Yorkshire coast will be heavily involved with its very own creative challenge, hosted at Sewerby Hall. To get involved, come along on Sunday 14 October from 10am till 3pm. The challenge is to cover 250 miles collectively and raise £500 or more.

There will be two walking routes available to complete:

Route 1 – A one-mile route within Sewerby Hall and Gardens around the picturesque woodland walk. Participants choosing this route can complete as many times as they wish and it is suitable for all ages. This route can be completed anytime between 10am and 2pm.

Route 2 – A more challenging five-mile route taking in the sights of Sewerby Cliffs, Danes Dyke and Flamborough South Landing. Starting and finishing in Sewerby Hall and Gardens, this walk is available for ages 5+, starting at 10am.

Paul Silvester, sport and active communities officer, said : “Whilst clocking up your miles, we’ll be asking everyone to collect natural bits and pieces along the way, including leaves, twigs, stones and whatever else you can find and carry, to create our very own showpiece for Children in Need, within the fantastic grounds of Sewerby Hall.

“Responsible Fishing UK, who have delivered some fantastic workshops for Active Coast over the last two years, will be leading the creative workshop to create something special and show our support for Children in Need.”

Admission into Sewerby Hall and Gardens for participants is free of charge – just quote ‘Children In Need’ at the pay box. All participants are advised to bring food, water, waterproofs, rucksack and don suitable footwear.
