Keen walkers – and fans of the a great British pub – will love two upcoming events being organised in aid of Wigan and Leigh Hospice.

A Midnight Walk takes place on Friday, 14 June 2024, whilst the Wigan Pub Walk is on Saturday, 18 May.

Both sound like fun and social ways to help support our local hospice… so why not encourage friends and family to sign up with you?

Here’s all the details you need…

Midnight Walk

Walk for Wigan & Leigh Hospice this June and take part in their Midnight Walk!

This five-mile walk is perfect for everyone to join in. Why not add some more fun to the mix by dressing up as a group or wearing all purple to show your support of the Hospice?

Ruperts Airstream Coffee Trailer and The RG’s Food Truck will be on hand at the event to offer delicious food and refreshments before and after the walk.

Registration begins at the Wigan Warriors Fan Zone, Robin Park Arena on Friday 14th June at 9pm. There will also be a warmup to get the walkers ready before setting everyone off at 10pm.

Registration is just £20.00 and free T-shirts will be provided for all.
