Our events are open to Acorns families, past, present or currently on our waiting list.

Join us on this walk along our beautiful beaches to start the half term holiday!

Monday 30th May, 11am-3:30pm, Tynemouth to St Mary’s Lighthouse and back (approx. 8.5 miles)

We’ll meet on Longsands beach in Tynemouth and head North along the beaches of Cullercoats and Whitley Bay, before reaching St Mary’s Lighthouse. We’ll then head back to Tynemouth, finishing with an ice cream on the beach!

It is about 8.5 miles in total so it’s a bit of a challenge, but definitely achievable – and we will support you every step of the way.

There is also the chance to leave a trail on our journey (for those who want to) to raise awareness of Acorns. We will run a craft session on Friday 20th May at 4pm to make items for this – we are thinking painted pebbles and messages tied onto acorns (although you can still attend the walk, even if you can't make it to the craft session)!

What to bring

  • A bottle of water
  • A snack/packed lunch
  • Supportive shoes to walk in (e.g. sports trainers)
  • Sunscreen (plus optional hat/sunglasses)
  • A waterproof jacket if rain is forecast
