The popular Derwen College sponsored 10k Walk and Fun Run returns even bigger and better after two years absence due to the coronavirus pandemic.

Organisers of the event are excited to be welcoming visitors to the Derwen College campus in Gobowen, near Oswestry, for what will be a fun-packed event for the whole family to enjoy. All funds raised from the event will be used to support people with special educational needs and disabilities (SEND) who work, study and live at Derwen.

For the first time ever, this year’s walk will be combined with the Derwen College Summer Fete, with both events taking place on 28 May from 10am.

As well as a great 10k sponsored walk and fun run, which starts and finishes at Derwen College, there will also be a summer fete taking place at the campus. Entertainment will include a bouncy castle, lots of games and activities, and a food and craft fair featuring some of the best local artisans.

Derwen College will also be showcasing its own food, and for the occasion will be selling over 10 flavours of homemade Derwen ice-cream. Also on sale will be special edition jams and chutneys to mark the Queen’s Jubilee.

Derwen College fundraiser Anna Evans said: “We are absolutely delighted to welcome supporters, students and the whole community back to our ever-popular Sponsored Walk and Fun Run. To celebrate our return, the event is going to be bigger and better than ever before. We have combined our two favourite events – the sponsored walk and Summer Fete – to create a Super Saturday with something for everyone.

“We’re hoping to see a record number of walkers and runners signing up, as well as lots of shoppers and visitors coming along to enjoy the fun. Ultimately, we also hope to raise lots of money for Derwen College Charity.”
