Stride into the Tide

Join us for a knees-up in Morecambe Bay! 
 Back by popular demand…. MfM supporters will once again stride into the tide of Morecambe Bay on the 14th of July 2013. Our last stride across Morecambe’s alluring quick sands raised over £3000 to fund education for boys locked up in Toamasina prison.

This year we have booked the ‘Queen’s Guide to the Sands’ to accompany an exclusive party of Akany Avoko and MfM supporters on this iconic adventure.This is a rare opportunity to step out onto the shimmering sands of Morecambe Bay, admire the backdrop of majestic mountains and maybe find some Ambergris (Whale sick!). This beachcomber’s jackpot is highly valued by the perfume industry. Last week a beachcomber found a piece of Ambergris worth £100,000 in Morecambe Bay! So keep your eyes peeled.

As well as being a fun day for a good cause this is a golden opportunity not to be missed. This year our guide, Cedric Robinson, is celebrating 50 years of guiding people across Morecambe's infamous sinking sands. Although the sea air has clearly defied Cedric from aging, one day, sooner or later, Cedric will retire, taking with him the secret of the sands and the art of how to cross them. 

Places on the walk are in high demand with supporters from Cambridge, Oxford, London,  The Wirral, Llangadog and Madagascar already signed up. Local Lancastrians aged 8 to 80 are also limbering up - including parties from Lancaster Girls Grammar School, Quernmore Primary School, University of Cumbria Pre-school, Lancaster Millenium Choir and Lancaster Quakers.
Please do support the big MfM Stride into the Tide on the 14th of July either by joining us for the knees-up or sponsoring someone else to get their pants wet!  Advanced booking is essential by contacting More details will soon be featured on the Events page of this blog.
