Cosy coats and woolly hats at the ready!

There's nothing quite like the autumn displays in the Wye Valley when the leaves change from green to red, orange and gold as the days get shorter and the temperature drops. Led by qualified guides, the Wye Valley Challenge sees you walking 12 fundraising miles through this gorgeous countryside to help us do more for sick kids. 

Your walk could be associated with a new beginning, to mark the advent of a special occasion or a significant memory. Whatever your reason, your support will help us do more for sick kids.
