Welly Walk – Jimmy’s Farm and Wildlife Park

July 13

Colchester & Ipswich Hospitals Charity is inviting families to sign up to stomp their way round Jimmy’s Farm and Wildlife Park and help make this year’s Welly Walk its biggest yet.

The fourth and final walk will give families the chance to explore a rewarding and fun-packed 5km trail before enjoying free entry to the wildlife park and rare breeds farm, where they will get the chance to see more than 100 different species of animal.

Participants will also get free admission to a family fun day taking place on site, which will include a range of attractions, stalls and entertainment, as well as the chance to watch hospital teams battle it out during a tug of war.

This year’s event takes place on Saturday 13 July. It will double as a celebration of the end of the Children’s Appeal and the transformation the children’s department at Ipswich Hospital, which is due for completion this summer.

The Children’s Appeal is raising money towards the multi-million pound redevelopment of Ipswich’s children’s department. Work to transform the ward areas and create further inpatient spaces, a school room and the new children’s assessment unit is almost complete, and will further improve the experience young patients and their families have when receiving care.

Colchester & Ipswich Hospitals Charity will use money raised through the Welly Walk to help fund equipment for the new play spaces to help keep young patients entertained during their admission.

Visit the charity’s website to get your Welly Walk tickets today. Tickets for a family of four are £30, adults are £10 and children aged between two and 17 are priced at £7.50. Children under the age of two are free.
