Get involved and get active with the Friends First Howth Cliff Walk in aid of Aware.
Friends First invites you to take part in this charity cliff walk to raise vital funds for our charity partner Aware.
Our route will see us encounter a number of notable features and stunning views. We will travel along the harbour before climbing around the Nose of Howth and onto the rugged clifftops. Look out for Balscadden House, which was the home of the young William Butler Yeats from 1880 to 1883; and the Baily Lighthouse, the last of Ireland’s lighthouses to become automated. Our route will also see us travel on a path that replaces the famous Howth Tramline.
Gather at the King Sitric (opposite the end of East Pier) from 9.30am on Saturday August 13th and pop your donation for Aware in the bucket. The registration fee is €10 and the walk will depart at 10am with our guide. It should take approximately 2 hours to complete. The walk is not suitable for young children but is open to anyone else who wishes to partake and help raise funds for Aware. Please be sure to wear appropriate clothing and footwear for the hike, which is 7KM in distance. If it happens to be a wet day, be sure to bring a waterproof jacket and hiking boots.
Aware is one of three charity partners supported by Friends First. Other partners include the Irish Cancer Society and Lessons for Life. The aim of the partnership is to promote mutually beneficial engagement and support between the charity and Friends First, which includes fundraising and staff volunteering to work with the selected charities.
Aware provides a range of vital support and education services to people impacted by stress, depression, bipolar and mood disorders. As a mental health charity, Aware are aligned with our role as a health insurer and as an employer committed to supporting our staff in healthy living and awareness.
