The 2017 Walk took place
SUNDAY 14th MAY
The 2017 Coastal Path Charity Walk took place on Sunday 14th May. The weather started out cloudy, but quickly brightened up to be warm and sunny - and with a following wind!
Just over 100 walkers had registered and everyone was in great spirits, enjoying the brilliant weather and fabulous scenery. The walk raised £11,376.35 which means that since it started and including this year, the coastal walk has now raised a brilliant total of £106,631 for many, many different charities.
The walk is organised each year by the Rotary Club of Anstruther and East Neuk to raise money for good causes. A total of 25 charities have benefitted so far this year and these are listed at the bottom of the page.
As always the walk is a great day out for individuals, groups or families. There are spectacular views across the Forth to the Bass Rock, May Isle and the Lothians. It is a great way to have a superb day out and raise lots of money for your chosen charity.
Anstruther Rotary Club works throughout the year for local, national and international charities and to benefit the communities of the East Neuk.
As organiser Colin Campbell said, 'Each year people taking part in the walk tell us how much they enjoyed the day and that they would definitely like to do it again. This year though was once again really good because we saw many new faces, as well as our friends from previous years. It was a really enjoyable day’.

Started in 2010, that first year raised £8,000 and we have seen subsequent years do even better as the event has become better known (although it must be said that the weather has had an effect too!)
Altogether the total raised since the event started now stands at £106,631 - and for many, many different charities. It is a wonderful tribute to everyone who takes part and to their supporters as well.
