A big thank you to all of you who have helped us raise an amazing amount for the coast path

UPDATE - See the ITV coverage of the end of the Great South West Walk, when the two red boots were finally reunited.

To celebrate the South West Coast Path Association's 40th Anniversary we walked the whole 630 mile long path as a series of 56 sponsored walks, each guided by a local expert. Over 1000 walkers helped us celebrate and raise money for improvements of the South West Coast Path. Check out our Walks page to find out more about each one.

In order to give the Coast Path a fantastic 'birthday present' the walk aimed to raise through individual sponsorship, grants, corporate sponsorship and matched funds at least £250,000. Our efforts have now raised over 640,000 pounds - over £1000 per mile of coast path. This will be used to fund over 130 improvement projects spread along the entire path. You can find out more about how these will make the Coast Path even more enjoyable to walk on our Project page.

How to pay in your sponsorship money and donations

For those of you who have helped us raise money for our wonderful South West Coast Path, through walking with us and getting sponsorship, it is now time to gather in your money and send it to us at our Head Office. Please make your cheques payable to 'The South West Coast Path Association'. You can find our address on the Contacts page.

To make a donation, should you not have had the chance to raise sponsorship, please go to our Donations page and give whatever you can afford. We will be most grateful.

Getting your sponsorship
We're asking each walker to try and raise sponsorship to enable us to lever in other funding and in total deliver over £250,000 of much needed improvements at over 40 locations spread all along the path. So every £1 you raise or donate will unlock other funds and take us closer to our target. Please visit the Fund Raising page for more information.

Our supporters
We are grateful for the support of our media partners below who are helping to promote the walk and the many other businesses and organisations who are helping in other ways. Details of these can be found on our Sponsors page.
