Our first event Welshpool Canal Walk was so popular it is back again this year on Sunday 24th September. This year the event will be in memory of one of our Hope House mums, Teresa Thomas, who organised the event for us last year and sadly passed away unexpectedly in January. We invite anyone who is up to the challenge to step out with us in memory of Tease, as she was affectionately known, and walk in her footsteps. The 8 mile route will follow the beautiful Montgomeryshire Canal from Welshpool to Garthmyl, on the edge of Berriew. The tranquil canal is a true haven for wildlife such as otters and water voles. The walk passes Powysland Museum in a carefully restored canal warehouse, the medieval Powys Castle and gardens and the Llyn Coed Y Dinas Nature Reserve. After 4 miles of walking you will reach The Horseshoes Inn being the halfway point. Toilets will be available and refreshments can be purchased before you turnaround and make your way back down the canal. Registration is free and there is no minimum sponsorship, however, we do ask you to raise what you can to help us continue to support our children and their families. The walk starts at 10am. All children must be accompanied by an adult. Dogs are welcome.
