Big Bear Hug Walk success

05 September 2017
The sun shone and crowds flocked to Temple Newsam to enjoy our Big Bear Hug Family Walk on Saturday 2nd September.

Around 200 people took part in the two walks - a 2k wheelchair/pushchair friendly route and a 5k route - with bears to find and musicians playing.

There were also a host of family activities, including rides, crafts and stalls, all in the glorious September sunshine.

Ellie Barker, events fundraiser, said: "I'm really please with how it went. We were so lucky to have such great weather, and people spend all afternoon enjoying the activities after the walk. 

"The Bear Hug Walk was one of our 30th anniversary celebration events, and seeing families spending time together and enjoying themselves was fantastic, as families are at the heart of everything we do."

The event was kindly sponsored by Redrow Homes, meaning the proceeds of the walk will go to supporting Martin House families.
