Winter Woolly Walk
Shake off the winter blues with a Woolly Great Walk
Cancer Fund for Children is delighted to announce that its annual family-friendly Winter Woolly Walk is back for 2018. Supported by Ni4kids, Winter Woolly Walk encourages families from across Northern Ireland to enjoy a short 2-4 mile walk in a stunning local park, whilst also raising funds to support local families affected by cancer.
There are seven walks taking place at beautiful locations across the country, including Belfast, Tyrone, Portstewart, Newcastle, Antrim, Fermanagh and L/Derry.
Walkers are free to stroll leisurely, or you can walk as briskly as you wish – just as long as everyone has fun and enjoys the wonderful wintry scenery. Bring the kids, the grandparents and get your woolly hats on for a great day out. Funds raised help Cancer Fund for Children continue its vital work which includes providing practical, emotional and financial support to local families affected by cancer as well as free short therapeutic breaks.
Winter Woolly Walks will take place across two weekends in February on Saturday 17 & 24. Registration is from 10am with walks starting at 10.30am.
