Your 50 miles will make a massive difference. We know.
In line with the government’s latest guidance – the reopening of restaurants and hotels from 4th July – as the situation stands, we are confident that Follow the Seagulls can go ahead in September. We were all gutted when Follow the Seagulls had to be postponed, and we appreciate your patience as we have got to grips with the ‘new normal’ and tried to understand the landscape for fundraising going forward. Of course, the situation will be closely monitored by us, and we will always act in line with government guidance.
With the latest guidance in mind, Follow the Seagulls 2020 will be going ahead on:
5th -6th September: Whitby and Isle of Wight
Follow the Seagulls is the long distance, charity trek to help people beat brain cancer. It’s your chance to do something truly incredible that matches your passion to help the 60,000 people in the UK who are afraid and alone because of their brain tumour diagnosis. It will take all you’ve got.
Not only was it an epic physical and mental challenge, it was also one of the most humbling and rewarding adventures I’ve been on. It was an incredible achievement and opportunity to truly see the best in people; sharing stories, support and collective goals. As the aches begin to fade, my gratitude for this amazing charity, and the people it has connected me with, just grows stronger and stronger’. – Sammy (Seagulls walker 2019)

In 2019, Follow the Seagulls has raised over £60,000 to help people living with a brain tumour and it couldn’t have come at a better time. This year has seen a huge increase in the number of people that have heard the words ‘you have a brain tumour’ reaching out to us for our support.
‘brainstrust were there for me in those first few hours when I sat alone at home, wondering what the hell had just happened, wondering how I was going to tell people, wondering if I would die, wondering ‘why me?’ They were calm, informed, and they listened to my ramblings for what seemed like hours, before offering me comfort, and invaluable practical advice to help get me through the following weeks. The consultants and surgeons saved my life, but I could not have held it together without the help of the people at brainstrust’ – Debbie (Seagulls walker 2018)
With COVID-19 drawing all fundraising events to a halt, we need you more than ever to keep our support going.
Until now, fundraising challenges that match your strength of feeling for improving life for people with a brain tumour have been few and far between. Now is your chance to help us shape brain tumour support in the UK and change the lives of those who we help.
