Why does your contribution matter?

With our supporters generous contributions we have raised £10,000* of donations unlocking £15,000 worth of labour from our partners, including the rangers of the National Trust, Dorset Countryside Service, Devon County Council and Cornwall Council. 

Each step that is replaced will be made of long-lasting local oak or sweet chestnut and cut to six inch high step boards. Using hardwood materialsmeansthey will last longer, reduce the need for preservation treatments andimproves the overall quality of the Path. 

These new steps will ease your climbs and descents along the Path, helping you to enjoy your experience more.  

We have only been able to achieve this appeal target by the end of June, with your help.

If you want to help to donate towards future step replacements please donate today, as we will always need to replace about 1,000 steps every year.

*We have raised more than £10,000 in donations through this appeal and any additional funding until the end of June 2018 received will be used to go towards the overall 40FOR40 campaign target of £40,000 and could be used to help towards other projects as identified by the South West Coast Path Association. Any donations received after the end of June 2018 will be allocated to future step replacement works.
