Anyone who uses the Path is a beneficiary of our charity!

Here are just a few people whose lives have been changed for the better thanks to the South West Coast Path:

CAROLINE, 48, POST- AMPUTATION REHABILITATION:“Walking all the South West Coast Path was one of the biggest physical and emotional challenges I have ever taken on. My fitness levels improved, and I climbed hills that I never thought I was capable of. I am so proud of my achievement. It has made me stronger mentally and physically.” 

SARAH, 30, MENTAL HEALTH: "This year has been one of my toughest in terms of emotional well-being, but the thing that has been my absolute rock is the Path. I had a month where I had zero energy but I took myself back to the Path and WOW....did it do wonders. The Path has been my rock. It's seen me through every emotion and I'm so grateful for the upkeep that you all provide."

ANDY, 61, RECOVERY FROM MAJOR INJURY: "The South West Coast Path made me walk again. I broke my back and could only walk very short distances. We would drive from Wiltshire down to Dorset and walk about a mile at a time before gradually increasing to about five miles. The wonderful views inspired me to walk further and further. I now live a mile from the South West Coast Path in North Cornwall. I walk on it every day. It keeps me motivated."
