Event details:

Join us for an 8 mile sponsored walk along the Welshpool Canal for the children and families of Hope House!

The walk is open to all and a fabulous day out for the whole family. There is no registration fee, but we do ask all our wonderful walkers to raise as much as you can to help us continue to be here for the children in our care.

The incredible Teresa Thomas, one of our Hope House mums, organised the first ever Welshpool Canal Walk in 2016. After she sadly passed away in 2017, we have continued her wonderful legacy by walking in her memory ever since. 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. You are also very welcome to join us to walk in memory or celebration of your own loved ones.

The route follows the beautiful Montgomeryshire Canal from Welshpool to Garthmyl, passing Powysland Museum, Powys Castle and the Llyn Coed Y Dinas Nature Reserve, where the canal is a haven for wildlife such as otters and water voles. After 4 miles you will reach The Horseshoes Inn, where you can buy hot drinks and bacon sandwiches to refuel your journey back along the canal before crossing the finish line and collecting your medal.

  • Registration opens at 9.30am in the Tesco Welshpool car park in front of the Hope House shop.
  • The walk begins at 10am.
  • All children must be accompanied by an adult.
