Sunday Afternoon Hats

 

"Here at Sunday Afternoons we not only produce an awesome range of hats for lovers of the outdoors, we also have a strong ethos of 'giving back'. Given the immense enjoyment that we together with all of our friends and families get out of the coast path we couldn't think of a better charity to support. We are also incredibly lucky to have our office located only metres away from the stretch of coastpath at Budleigh Salterton in East Devon and we take every single available opportunity to spend time enjoying everything that the coastpath has to offer!

We would like to thank everyone at the South West Coast Path Association for their amazing efforts and hard work, we are absolutely delighted to be partnering with such a worthwhile cause that is not only very dear to us but also benefits so many people." - The Sunday Afternoon Hats UK Team

The Different Travel Company

"As a local tour operator, with our roots in Responsible and Sustainable Travel, we feel it is very important to  protect our local environment. We therefore make a donation for each person who takes part in one of our events along the Jurassic Coast each year, as well as advising on how to do their bit to maintain the paths and cause minimal disturbance whilst trekking." - Sarah Burgess, The Different Travel Company

Wild Running 

"I wanted to help rise awareness and funds for this great cause, through two events which have the coast path at their heart. Our Two Moors Ultra weekend  on September 29th and 30th links the North Devon Coast Path to Wembury in the South, while our Dart Swim Run marathon on September 22nd, begins on the coast path near Dartmouth. 

"I am lucky enough to  live almost within a stones throw of the South West Coast Path near Hope Cove in Devon and the coast path here is a haven for the whole family. Even more so being a long distance runner. Any one who loves the outdoors is a custodian of these routes. Without custodians to maintain the coast path, it would soon become another unloved landmark, inaccessible to recreational users, especially in the age of austerity and council cut backs. So I'm only too pleased to try and give something back, whether it's by sharing an awareness or fund raising through our events." - Ceri Rees, Wild Running

Dorset Coastal Cottages 

"The South West Coast Path is a wonderful facility for our guests. From spectacular views and abundant nature to glorious places to eat and drink, everything that Dorset has to offer is available along its length. We encourage our guests to protect what they come to enjoy and as locals, it’s important to us as well." - Tom Boltwood, Dorset Coastal Cottages

Luggage Transfers

"Luggage Transfers Ltd and Lt Taxis & Private Hire Services Ltd like to support the South West Coast Path Association primarily as a means of ensuring the Coast Path is monitored, repaired and promoted both within Britain and beyond, particularly within the big european markets such as Germany and Holland. If businesses such as ours chose to profit from the Coast Path, yet did nothing to repair or promote it -whilst knowing that government funding is not nearly adequate to do so - that would be wrong and ultimately would make our own businesses unsustainable." - Ben Charity, Luggage Transfers

The Malcolm Whales Foundation

The  Malcolm Whales Foundation was set up following Malcolm's death from bowel cancer in 2008, aged just 55. The charity raises awareness and funds for all cancers, with particular focus on children's cancer. To raise money the foundation organises an annual July walk along the South West Coast Path, walking 40 miles from Weymouth to Studland. The event is walked each year by hundreds of secondary school students and other adults. Since 2008, when 30 young people took part, the walk has grown steadily each year with 2019 numbers expected in the region of 300 people. 

"The Jurassic Coast provides a stunning back drop and a really tough physical challenge, each year more people are exposed to its beauty and challenges. At the foundation we felt it important to give something back, we raise thousands of pounds each year. Being able to support the maintenance of the paths that we are so dependent upon seems entirely appropriate. Being able to offer financial support the the South West Coast Path seems like a perfect partnership, one hopefully that lasts for many years to come". - Damien Whales, Malcolm's son and the Foundation Chairman
