CoastBusters! Join our fundraising wellness campaign this Easter

Are you a CoastBuster? Join our new fundraising/wellness challenge this Easter!


Following their successful fundraising walk in October 2020, to Brest & back, our Worcestershire Breast Unit support group is attempting a bigger, challenge – CoastBusters – and is inviting you to join them and raise funds for our charity which supports the women & men of Worcestershire who are diagnosed with breast cancer. 


The new England Coastal Trail is a new route, nearly 3000 miles long and follows the entire coast of England. It is divided into 67 sections of varying length, starting at Aust in Gloucestershire, near the Welsh border, then follows the coastal margin in an anti- clockwise direction around the southern part of the country, then heads north along the eastern coastline to the Scottish border. The last sections are from Gretna to Liverpool on the west coast. 

Can you help us complete the walk between the Easter weekend & the Spring Bank Holiday 2021 and raise money for the WBUH. 

The link to the map can be found here: 

 There is more information about the 67 sections and the distances for each section are also listed here below. All distances are taken from to the Government Coastal Trail website pages. Not all sections are open. 

You can choose any section or a distance or even join with family and friends and walk, cycle or run the whole 2,795 miles between you. 

Maybe it will somewhere with happy memories of holidays or somewhere you are longing to visit once we are allowed. 

Due to Covid restrictions walks will have to be done locally & following regulations, so choose your section & walk the equivalent distance around our beautiful Worcestershire countryside. 

Donations to your walk can be made to the WBUH via
