Fundraising Burnham to Brean beach walk to be held today

Walkers are being invited to take part in a fundraising beach walk today (Sunday) to support families affected by Alzheimer’s disease.

The annual Brean Challenge fundraising walk will start at 10am on Sunday (May 27th) and will comprise of a 15 mile walk from Burnham Pier to Brean Down and back.

A shorter 7.5 mile alternative is also being offered from the entrance of Berrow Beach and a return to the pier.

Organiser Mike Barsby told "Alzheimer’s can affect anyone and statistics show one in four people know or have known someone with Alzeimer's or dementia."

"By raising funds for the Alzheimer's Society I hope that more support can be provided for families affected by Alzheimer's as well as allowing the society to continue its research for a cure."

Medals will be awarded to the first five walkers who arrive at Brean Down Cove and all participants will be presented with a certificate.
