2023 Walk for Wards

October 9, 2023

What a fabulously-fun day out for all the family.

More than 320 people across Dorset came together to enjoy a family-friendly day out on Saturday 14 October 2023 at Upton Country Park for our flagship fundraising event, Walk for Wards.

People grabbed their wellies and walking boots on ready to walk 3km, 5km or a 10km route around the beautiful grounds, taking in the stunning scenery through the Woodlands and along Poole Bay before enjoying the locals-makers market, delicious refreshments and live music.

While the fundraising is continuing, the final amount raised will be shared in the next six weeks or so.

Thank you to everybody who walked for a ward close to their heart. Whether people walked in memory of a loved one or simply wanted to support their local hospitals while enjoying a great day out, the community spirit was amazing and it was great to hear everybody enjoying the event.

You may even spot yourself!

The fun doesn’t have to stop here though, we’re already excited to get into the festive spirit and hold the charity’s wonderfully jolly Elf Dash event for 2023. It is always a sell-out event so be quick to get your tickets if you are hoping to join us for some elf-fashioned fun, you can find out all about it here.
