Yes the whole family, including your four legged friends, can join Willen Hospice on Saturday, June 2 to take part in their Diamond Jubilee Walk for Willen.

The sponsored walk is a three mile circuit of the North and South Willen Lakes, or a shorter walk of one and a half miles around the North Lake only, both of which start and finish at the Hospice. Walking can start at anytime from 10:30am on the day and walkers should aim to be finished by 1:30pm, when they can enjoy refreshments in the Hospice Garden.

Walkers this year are encouraged to take part in Diamond Jubilee Fancy Dress and prizes will be awarded to the best dressed. For a registration form please call the events team on 01908 306695 or sign up online.

Events and Community Fundraiser, Allison Waterhouse said: “We’re really looking forward to our Jubilee Walk for Willen in the Queens Diamond Jubilee year. It’s going to be a great, fun event to be enjoyed by those with two legs or four and we are looking forward to seeing lots of imaginative fancy dress.”

There will also be a special memory wall erected on the fence by the lake, in the Hospice grounds, for people to leave a message in memory of a loved one. Cards will be available on the day or can be requested beforehand by contacting the Hospice.

The registration fee for the Walk for Willen is £5 for adults in advance, £6 on the day and £1 for 16 and under in advance, £1.50 on the day – dogs walk for free
