Building firm steps up to support Rosemere’s Cross Bay Walk

Its first Cross Bay Walk had just 75 participants but last year, 500 people of all ages took part. For this year’s walk on Saturday, 9th June, Rosemere Cancer Foundation has been allocated 350 places, applications for which are now open online at or by telephoning 01772 522913. Places cost £10 per person.

Cathy Skidmore, Rosemere Cancer Foundation’s trust and corporate fundraising manager, said: “This is an iconic walk led by Queen’s Guide Cederic Robinson MBE that makes for a great day out. If you have never done it before, I urge you to join us. You’ll not be disappointed.

“This year, we’re immensely grateful to Eric Wright Group for sponsoring the walk. Its sponsorship means that our staging costs are covered so that every penny from walk entry fees and any money raised by individual walkers will go directly to funding projects to benefit local cancer patients.”

Eric Wright's construction site and Cross Bay Banner Jeremy Hartley, managing director of Eric Wright Group, said: “We are delighted to be involved in Rosemere Cancer Foundation’s Cross Bay Walk.

“As a local company, we are well aware of Rosemere Cancer Centre at which a number of our staff and family members have been treated. It is our pleasure to support Rosemere Cancer Foundation and the work it does support not only the centre but all our region’s hospital cancer units and cancer patients.”

As well as backing 2018’s Cross Bay Walk, the company is also sponsoring Rosemere Cancer Foundation’s Walk in the Dark on the night of Saturday, 28th April.  Appropriately, Eric Wright Group’s housing division, Applethwaite Homes, kindly hosted Rosemere Cancer Foundation for the photo shoot at its Blenkett View development of 16 homes in Allithwaite on the outskirts of Grange-over-Sands, only a short distance from the finish at Kents Bank.

Why not volunteer?

Why not volunteer?

During December Rosemere awards it's annual 'Emily Dibben Volunteer of the Year' award at the Volunteer and Supporters' Night. It is always such a hard decision to single out an individual, couple or group out for this acknowledgement, as we have so many fantastic people who go above and beyond in their efforts to support Rosemere.
