In Memory Giving

Giving in Memory of of someone special is a wonderful thing to do, and there are many ways in which we can help you to remember someone who loved the South West Coast Path, by making a donation as a lasting tribute


Join our Life's Journeys Community

Life's Journeys is an online community in which family and friends come to remember their passed loved ones, by adding a photo tribute of them, in return for a small donation to the South West Coast Path Association. Special memories are shared, whether these are of moments on the path, or of those who have loved the path and are no longer here to share the memories themselves.

Set Up a Tribute Fundraising Page

If the South West Coast Path was an important part of a loved one's life, you may like to consider setting up a tribute fundraising page, to allow others to make a donation in their memory. This could be alongside a funeral collection, or could be a separate fundraising page. Whether you'd like to work towards a target, or just allow people a space to donate in memory of someone who they cared about, tribute fundraising is a selfless way to help the legacy of a loved one continue for even longer, and help others to enjoy this special place, just as they did.

Become a Commemorative Mile Maker

Each year, the South West Coast Path costs at least £1500 per mile to maintain. By donating this cost in memory of a loved one, you'll be ensuring that the Path continues to survive and thrive for years to come. In return, we'll also provide you with a beautiful bespoke oak National Trails sign, enscribed with their name, for you to treasure in their memory.

Walk In Their Footsteps

In Their Footsteps is a campaign set up by the South West Coast Path Association which encourages people to walk in memory of a loved one. By walking their favourite section of the Path as a sponsored activity, you'll be raising vital funds and awareness for the SWCPA, all whilst celebrating somewhere and something that was special to someone who's no longer with us. Walk solo or as a team, and in return we'll provide you with a special 'thank you', so you'll have a token reminder of your achievement and their memory.
