THE popular Llangollen Canal Walk which raises money for a vital local charity will return after a two-year break next month.

On Sunday, March 6, walkers will take in the stunning views of the Pontcysyllte Aqueduct, as well as the beautiful canal-side scenery and wildlife.

It will once again raise money for the Hope House and Ty Gobaith children's hospice.

The hospice is a centre of excellence for children’s palliative care ensuring every family facing the death of a child gets the very best care and support when and where they need it.

The 10-mile walk will begin at the Trevor Basin in the morning, before taking in five miles of stunning scenery up to the Poachers’ Pocket and returning over the world-famous aqueduct.

For those who would prefer to complete a 10-mile walk virtually on a route of their choice then tickets are also available for that option too.

Fundraiser Cat Dowdeswell said: “We’re delighted to be able to bring our ever-popular Llangollen Canal Walk back in 2022 for its 11th year – two years after we were able to last hold this event.

“This really is one of the best local walking routes, is manageable for walkers of all abilities, and of course families. You can even bring the dog if you like, as long as they are kept on a lead.

“We can’t wait to see you all there again, what a way to welcome in the spring.

“Tickets are likely to go quickly for this one so make sure you sign up online.”

The event has been sponsored by Wrexham-based Net World Sports.

* Tickets are £10 for adults and £5 for children and you can sign up to the event by visiting the Hope House Hospice website.
