Step into Summer!
A five mile sponsored hike, taking in the beautiful Prior Woods full of wildlife, and the stunning surroundings of our Charlton Farm children’s hospice.
Priors Wood is a beautiful area that was once part of the Tyntesfield Estate, and parts of the wood date back to the 1600’s. The wood is full of wildlife, including buzzards, chiffchaffs and garden warblers, and roe deer. The event will be on uneven and steep terrain, therefore is not suitable for pushchairs or wheelchairs.
Get ready to Ramble!
Our Summer Ramble is a 5 mile sponsored walk around the grounds of Charlton Farm hospice, taking in Priors Wood, part of the Gordano Round foothpath. Kate Fox-Robinson, Sibling Support Worker at Charlton Farm, explains how the surroundings benefit all who stay and work at the hospice.
“We try and make use of our beautiful setting all year round, collecting flowers for the house, feeding the horses, making art from fallen leaves, playing in the sandpit or the willow tunnel. Priors Wood is a wonderful place to take the children to explore, to build dens, to picnic, to create nature scavenger hunts and to talk, which is a vital part of the work we do supporting siblings of children who have life-limiting conditions.”
