The Welly Walk is back!

Explore our interactive woodland route at the final Welly Walk.

Sign up today for a fun-filled adventure on Saturday 13 July!

The Welly Walk is back at Jimmy’s Farm & Wildlife Park for a fourth and final year!

The 5km stomp will take you on an interactive walk inside Jimmy’s Farm, guiding you through the Wildlife Park for an activity packed family day out. After the walk enjoy free entry to Jimmy's Farm & Wildlife Park to enjoy at your leisure.

Continue the fun with exclusive access to Colchester & Ipswich Hospitals Charity's Family Fun Day to celebrate the end of The Children's Appeal and the completion of the Children's Department transformation at Ipswich Hospital. 

Not only does each ticket give you all the above, but it also gets you 10% off all onsite catering outlets for the day! This includes the restaurant & coffee house, field kitchen, and snack shack. The voucher can be used as many times as you like for food and soft drinks (excludes alcoholic drinks) during your visit. The perfect excuse to treat the gang to ice creams! 

Funds raised from the event will be supporting The Children’s Appeal, and will help to finish transforming the Children’s Department at Ipswich Hospital into the light, airy and welcoming space that patients and their families deserve. Find out more about The Children's Appeal.
