The Jurassic Coastline is not only a famous part of Dorset, but it is also England’s first natural UNESCO World Heritage Site that spans all the way from Orcombe Point near Exmouth in Devon to Old Harry Rocks at Studland Bay in Dorset, over an approximate total distance of 95 miles!
The Jurassic Coast ranks as one of the natural wonders of the world, alongside the likes of the Great Barrier Reef and the Grand Canyon.
July 2019 will see Red Mist Leisure, alongside some of our closest business friends and suppliers, who include Mozzo Coffee, 1st Call Tree Surgeons, Carlsberg and The Wellington Estate, walk 100 kilometres of the Jurassic Coastline in just 2.5 days. The journey, which has been described as an epic undertaking will encompass over 2,600m of climb along the 100k journey commencing in Axminster and finishing in Swanage, tackling the ups and downs of the Golden Cap, Lulworth Cove, Durdle Door, Beer, Abbotsbury, Chesil Bay and West Bay.
We are hoping to raise as much money and awareness as possible for two charities that will benefit immensely from our support.
Only a Pavement Away is a charity founded by representatives from the hospitality industry. The purpose of this charity is to create an effective conduit between employers in the hospitality industry and those charities & associations whose main aim is to support the homeless, ex-offenders and ex-service personnel to reintegrate back into society.
The charity very much helps to support those people struggling to get into work to overcome hurdles by finding jobs within the hospitality, pub and restaurant industry. The charity’s initial focus was on helping the Homeless and those sleeping rough including those having to “sofa hop”. This has now developed further to include ex-service personnel, ex-offenders and those with learning difficulties. The charity aims to help improve the journey to employment, but more importantly to help eradicate the risk of people having to face the existence of living on the streets.
Everyone deserves an opportunity and a chance to forge a career and the hospitality industry, in which we work, is an exciting one built on people.
Did you know there are currently over 600,000 people living with epilepsy in the UK, which is the equivalent to almost 1 in 100 people! As a guide, approximately 87 more people will be diagnosed today here in the UK… and every day thereafter.
The Meath Epilepsy Charity was established to enhance the lives of people who have complex epilepsy and related disabilities by ensuring they receive the support, expert care and encouragement required to build confidence, acquire new skills and maximise independence in their daily lives. This is achieved by providing the support, care and protection of the physical and mental health of people living with epilepsy and associated learning and physical disabilities through the provision of suitable accommodation, tailored assistance, skills training, and leisure and sports activities.
This local charity, based in Godalming, provides 24-hour residential care and support including the services of an epilepsy nurse, medical health nurse and twice-weekly dedicated GP visits, physiotherapy and occupational therapy, a dedicated skills centre featuring a gym, pottery and cookery room, IT suite and a full programme of activities both on and off site.
