Hundreds of walkers joined the popular Llangollen Canal Walk to support Hope House and Tŷ Gobaith Children’s Hospices, raising more than £15,000.

The event, which was held on Sunday saw walkers take in the stunning Pontcysyllte Aqueduct and beautiful canal-side scenery under stunning sunshine.

The 10-mile walk began early at The Trevor Basin before ramblers headed over the aqueduct towards the Poachers’ Pocket and back again.

Fundraiser Cat Dowdeswell said: “It was amazing to have everyone back together for our Llangollen Canal Walk.

“Our supporters really do make the events and in the glorious sunshine, we all had a lot of fun.

“To raise more than £15,000 is incredible and we would love to thank everyone who joined us on the day and supported us to reach this amount, which will do so much to help support children and their families who receive care at Hope House and Tŷ Gobaith.”

The event was sponsored by Wrexham-based Net World Sports.
