Pat Furgusson Coast to Coast Fundraising Walk

Pat Furgusson Coast to Coast Fundraising Walk

Pat Fergusson, Fylde Soroptimist, is back home safe and sound after surviving the Wainwright Coast to Coast walk.

Pat bravely defied the British weather and spent half of June walking the 196 miles from St Bees to Robin Hood’s Bay raising funds to be shared between TOFS (Tracheo Oesophageal Fistula Support for families of babies born unable to swallow) and Fylde Sharks. Pat said “the weather had been so wet all day. I am sure it would have been easier to swim the last 20 miles rather than walk it, as we did.

The triumphal march along the cliff-top to Robin Hood's Bay gave absolutely nil visibility and I had been wondering all day just how long you can have wet feet before your nails drop off. But that being said, it was the most wonderful experience and every moment of it was fantastic in its own way, not only the route but the people, the odd places and situations we found ourselves in and the terrific camaraderie of the people Chris, John and I met along the way."

A massive thank you goes out to Pat from all at Fylde Sharks, well done for this amazing achievement - thank you!
