If you’re in Woolacombe this Sunday head down to the beach and check out the 17th annual UK National Sandcastle Competition, or even enter a team and give it a go yourself!
The annual UK National Sandcastle Competition is celebrating its 17th year this July and in usual form, we’ve booked another day of glorious sunshine!
We’re welcoming crowds from across the country and from across the channel. Join us for the day and enter a team to build a sandcastle and enjoy the days sunny festivities.
Every year, the UK National Sandcastle Competition raises money for the amazing local charity, North Devon Hospice. The hospice provides care and support to patients who are diagnosed with a life-limiting illness, and suppport for those who love them. North Devon Hospice believe in being there for all the family, and every year, thanks to the generosity of the local community, together we continue to raise money to make this possible.
On the day you will be given a collection bucket, with every penny you raise being donated to North Devon Hospice. We hope you will do your best to collect as much as you can in support of care and support in the local community.
