On 25th May, the eighth “Fal River Walk” launches a new 11.5 mile route, with an 8 mile option, providing both world class walking and scenery and the chance to take the total funding provided to charities beyond £100,000.
Organised by the Rotary Club of Truro Boscawen, in conjunction with Fal River Ferries who provide the special boat links around Carrick Roads, this is the only day of the year when this walk can be undertaken. For a registration fee of £16, or £36 for a family, walkers are provided with parking all day at the start, Ponsharden, all instructions and comprehensive marshalling, ferries and a picnic cream team at the end.
Particularly enjoyable is the circular walk from Place, on the Roseland, around St Anthony’s Head, past Towan beach and back via Froe.
Based on last year’s successful launch, an optional competitive alternative is available for teams of four, who wish to pit themselves against others in additional trials – on water and on land. The “Team Challenge” is designed for businesses and organisations for raising their profile, fundraising for the chosen and their own charities, even for team development, and always for fun!
The Cornish Charities supported this year are Shelterbox, well known for providing aid after natural disasters, and BF Adventure, which organises outdoor adventure for younger people in need.
