Leave a Gift In Your Will

Help us to create a resilient, sustainable and accessible Trail today, tomorrow and forever.

The future of the South West Coast Path may depend on it. Can you imagine the south west coastline without it? We can't.

Thanks to the generous support we already receive, the South West Coast Path Association is committed to working with others who live, visit and work along the Trail every day, to keep the way open to beautiful coastal places, even with all the challenges that we face now and into the next decades.

Gifts in Wills provide vital funding for our work. After providing for your loved ones, please consider the Association in your Will and trust that we will use any amount large and small, to champion and protect this unique 630-mile route for years to come. 

“I always find it very humbling when we receive a gift from those that have kindly thought about us in their Wills. Gifts like this make a huge difference to our ability to care for the Path, they significantly increase the range and scope of work we can do.

From helping with drainage repairs and replacing bridges, to engaging young people to get out on the Path, each one plays a valuable role.”   

 Ken Carter, former Chair, South West Coast Path Association
