Postponed - March for Veterans - Llandudno

**This event has been postponed. We will be re-scheduling to a new date in 2021 so keep an eye on this page for a new date soon.**

Date: 19 September 2020
Type: March for Veterans, Walking
Location: Wales
Sponsorship target: £75

March for Veterans returns for another bracing 10 mile yomp around the coast line of Llandudno, led by ‘The Lads’ – an incarnation of our iconic Victory Over Blindness statue, brought to life by members of our rehabilitation team. 

*** NEW DATE: this event has been rescheduled to 19th September 2020 ***

This March is not a race – it’s about being part of a group walking together and working towards raising vital funds to support the work we do at our training and rehabilitation centre in Llandudno rebuilding the lives of veterans after sight loss.

Step off from our Llandudno Centre with the encouraging cries and bell ringing of Llandudno Town Crier, and Blind Veterans UK Vice President, Billy Baxter. Head for the Promenade where you will be joined by some of our blind veterans to make your way to the cenotaph, up and around the Great Orme before returning to the Llandudno Centre for a well-earned brew up.

Marching is, of course, optional. We would in fact encourage you to simply walk, ten miles is a long way to keep that up after all.

Registration options

Kicks off at: 10.30 am

  • Adult: £15
  • Child: £10
  • Children under 5 years: Free
  • Group Discount (Group of ten): £100

We think you’re awesome for taking part in March for Veterans, you are helping us rebuild lives after sight loss. In exchange we promise:

  • A fantastic, fully guided walk with support from our awesome staff
  • A snazzy branded t-shirt so you can rock the Team Blind Veterans look on the day
  • A veritable shower of training and fundraising advice ahead of the walk
  • A direct line to your amazing local fundraising team
  • Access to our exclusive Team Blind Veterans UK Facebook group…memes always welcome.
  • Help and support wherever you need it – we’re with you every step of the way!

Routes are subject to change due to unforeseen circumstances. Please check emails from your regional fundraising team in the run up to your event for updates on weather and event changes.

We know…£75 is a doddle, if you fancy a challenge you can double it – don’t let us stop you. £150 would pay for TWO blind veterans to come to one of our centres for Christmas dinner, and just like that…you’ve done your bit to end isolation!

Volunteering

Do you have friends and family that want to support you? Would you like to be part of this great event but don’t fancy the walk? If so, get in touch! We need volunteers to cheer on our walkers as they make it round the course and to bring a smile to their face.

We will provide everything you need to look the part including a Blind Veterans UK T-shirt, cheer-sticks and clappers.
