We’re challenging all ages and breeds to join us for The Great Willen Woof, a live GPS tracked game packed with hotspots and challenges for you, your family, friends and canine companions. Use the app to navigate around the Willen area, aiming to visit as many ‘hotspots’ on the map as possible. The GPS will automatically unlock tasks close by for you to complete in order to earn points in this competitive, fun and unique team activity.
The Yapp-Venture costs £20* and includes a certificate and family photo, perfect for a half-term activity. If you have a Willen Hospice Fundraising Passport you can even get a stamp! Hot food and drinks will be available as well.
*£20 covers the cost of the event but it would be fantastic if you could raise additional funds via sponsorship to help support patients receiving specialist end of life care. You can download a sponsor form here.
Please agree to our terms and conditions before taking part in this event.
