Thousands Join Wirral Coastal Walk 2009: Involved Around

Thousands join Wirral Coastal Walk

Get involved AROUND 4,500 people joined a wet and windy Wirral Coastal Walk, raising hundreds of thousands of pounds for charity.
The 15-mile walk around the borough’s coastline, organised by North Wirral Rotary Club, is Wirral’s biggest fund-raising event and is now in its 23rd year. Walkers of all ages took part, with stopping-off points at five and 10 miles for those who could not manage the entire trek. The walk started at Seacombe Ferry and took in New Brighton, Leasowe, Meols, Hoylake, West Kirby and Caldy. It finished at Thurstaston Country Park. Jim Costello, of North Wirral Rotary Club, said many walkers set off early &ndash some before 8am &ndash because of the dreary conditions forecast.
“But yet again, the people of Merseyside and Wirral in particular turned out in their thousands to take part in the Wirral Coastal Walk.
