Willen Walking Group

Connecting with other carers

1030am Thursdays for 1 hour

Are you supporting a family member or friend known to Willen Hospice?

The walking group runs every Thursday from 10:30- 11:30am and is open to anyone; patients, carers, families and staff at Willen Hospice. The route walked will be decided on the day, depending on who is attending and what their abilities are. Dogs and mobility scooters are welcome!

Before the Walk

We meet in the Wellbeing Centre, where we will complete a register and ensure that we have the information required from each participant. This is your opportunity to discuss any limitations you may have on the day with staff/volunteers.

This helps us plan the route for the day. You can also place an order for lunch at the café if you would like to stay afterwards.

After the Walk

We gather back at the Wellbeing Centre for drinks and cake, which can be purchased from the Hospice Café.

Therapeutic and Wellbeing staff will be available until 12pm to talk to, either within the group or confidentially if preferred.

Booking your place

If you would like to attend the Walking group, please let us know by emailing livingwell@willen-hospice.org.uk or calling 01908 973264.

On occasion, we may have to cancel the group due to inclement weather or other unforeseen circumstances. By letting us know when you can attend, we can ensure to contact you to keep you informed if this is the case.
