Wish Walk

Newsdate: 13 July 2016

We are very excited to announce that registration is now open for our very first sponsored Wish Walk.

The sponsored walk is to raise money for the Wrightington Wish Fund. All monies raised will go towards improving our patients’ experiences whilst in hospital. Some of the transformative pieces of equipment we are fundraising for include specially designed chairs, movement analysis cameras and anti-gravity machines all of which can aid and speed up our patients’ recovery.

The inaugural sponsored Wish Walk, in aid of the Wrightington Wish Fund, will take place on the Wrightington Open Day - Saturday 24 September from 12pm until 4pm - in the grounds of Wrightington hospital.

The especially design route will take in the beautiful surroundings of the Wrightington site, close by the newly opened Orthopaedic Unit. This route is suitable for all ages and abilities, particularly patients.

Elizabeth Titley, Fundraising Officer at WWL, said: “It would be wonderful to see patients, families and public supporting the day and joining in with the walks and activities, as all the proceeds will be going back into patient care.”

Entry for the walk is free but all walkers are encouraged to raise as much money as they can through sponsorship. If you would like to take part in the Wrightington Wish Walk, please contact Elizabeth Titley on 01942 823805 or via e-mail at for more information and a sponsorship pack.
