Hospice seeks walkers for big spring fundraiser

Nightingale House Hospice is looking for people to take part in a major fundraising effort close to Llangollen this spring.

The World Heritage Walk on Sunday April 7 is a 13-mile walk through beautiful scenery along the  tow paths and footpaths of Llangollen and Oswestry.

Walking with fellow Nightingale House supporters, breathtaking scenery awaits at every twist and turn, including the iconic Pontcysyllte Aqueduct, Chirk Aqueduct, Trevor Basin and the Chirk Tunnel.

As well as raising much-needed funds for the hospice, this is also a great opportunity to see in the summer with a walk through some of the region’s most picturesque countryside, an area awarded the status of World Heritage Site by UNESCO.

There is no registration fee to complete the World Heritage Walk but organisers are encouraging people to raise as much sponsorship as they can.

Both children and dogs are welcome and the route is suitable for pushchairs. However, all participants must be able to walk the full 13 miles.

Walkers will start their journey by meeting the Nightingale House team at the Lion Quays in Oswestry at 09:45am where free parking will be provided.

A free coach will transport them at approximately 10.30am to the Chainbridge Hotel in Llangollen where your walking adventure will begin at 11:30am.

The walk will last from four to five hours  - you can take as long as you wish but the Nightingale House team will leave the hotel at 4pm.
