A WREXHAM hospice has announced the return of its World Heritage Walk for 2024.

Sponsored once again by Pat's Coaches of Southsea, the Nightingale House Hospice fundraiser takes place on Sunday, May 19.

The sponsored walk provides an opportunity for supporters of the hospice to raise funds for the services and support they provide to individuals with life-limiting conditions, and their loved ones.

Susan Williams, community fundraiser at Nightingale House Hospice, said: "I am really looking forward to this year's World Heritage Walk, which is always so popular amongst our supporters. Please come along and join us on this beautiful walk while raising much-needed funds for Nightingale House Hospice. We look forward to seeing you."

Participants have the opportunity to explore some of the region's most picturesque countryside, recognised as a UNESCO World Heritage Site. The World Heritage Walk spans 13 miles of scenic landscapes along the historic towpaths and footpaths of Llangollen and Oswestry, regions rich in local heritage.

Kate Evans, who took part in the Nightingale House World Heritage Walk last year, added: "I completed the Heritage Walk for the third time in 2023; you could never get bored of walking along such beautiful scenery and raising money for such a wonderful charity.

"The volunteers are so friendly, and a lovely 'well done' from them at the finish line makes the sore feet and aching legs worth it! Looking forward to signing up again this year."
