St David’s Hospice is set to host its first Christmas Memories walk on Saturday 4th December with the support of a local business as the main sponsor.
Gareth Roberts Opticians, providers of eye care services, will be kindly sponsoring the fundraising event taking place in Llandudno next month. This year, instead of having a Christmas party, the staff at the opticians have decided to take part in the festive walk and the company will support through sponsorship.
Rhodri Williams, Owner of the Llandudno Opticians said:
‘We are extremely pleased to have the opportunity to sponsor the St David’s Hospice Christmas Memories Walk. We will make it a part of our Practice Christmas celebrations this year and hopefully for many more years to come.’
The evening walk, which starts at 6.30pm is primarily for families to remember loved ones this Christmas but also to create new memories.
To add to the seasonal atmosphere, there will be a festive stop-off at the half way point where everyone can immerse themselves in the spirit of Christmas with carol singing, marshmallow toasting and a chance to enjoy a warming refreshment whilst browsing stalls, all located in the grounds of the Hospice on Abbey Road.
Event Co-ordinator, Rhian Jacobs thanks the sponsors:
“We are so grateful to Gareth Roberts Opticians for their kind support towards our Christmas Memories Walk.
“Receiving corporate sponsorship helps us to cover the costs of running our events and ensures we can direct all of the funds raised back into the care we provide at our hospice.”
The event is set to raise thousands of pounds for patient care and it is hoped that hundreds of people will walk the 4 mile route through Llandudno.
Standard entry tickets are £16 for adults, £12 for under 16s and £45 for a family (2 adults & 2 children) raising sponsorship is optional.
Included in the entry fee, each walker will receive their own Limited Edition bobble hat to keep them warm, and also a Christmas bauble to place on their tree at home as a memento.
