Pirates of the East Coast Sponsored Walk – Sun 26th May 2019

Whoop, Whoop... Our pirate walk is complete. Ten pillaging pirates walked from North Berwick Harbour to Dunbar Harbour. A gruesome 14.2 miles along the John Muir way, raising funds for equipment for our Sparkling Dunbar Harbour Festival – The Dunbar Harbour Trust’s free annual community event.

'Nae a good start as oor poor pirates got drooned' at North Berwick Law from an unexpected downpour and the last leg tested all with high winds. But not to be defeated, and with some intermittent sunshine, the jolly crew smashed the walk!

Our pirates were few and included two pesky pirate children aged 11 and 10 – young troopers who made no complaint and chatted along the way to keep the aged villains going! PS: Cap'n Jack Sparrow doesn't work with children and animals. He's a big fearty.

Raising a phenomenal £875.75, we are grateful to Yvonne Wymess and all who participated, helped organise, made cakes (£130 from bake sales) and supported us on the day but most of all the wonderful, generous people who sponsored us! Thank you!
