Welcome to the official website for the Spooky Welly Walk 2018!

Last year an incredible 10,000 people donned their wellies and best Halloween fancy dress, helping us raise an astonishing £58,000. This money will help support thousands of people living with lung cancer - patients, carers and their families. 
We have two Spooky Welly Walks again this year- Sefton Park and Sherdley Park. Here you can take a look at the maps for each event to see what activities are on offer and book tickets. 

Sefton Park, Liverpool - 20th October

Sherdley Park, St Helens - 27th October


This year we're proud to launch our new, interactive Spooky Fundraising page, making it both fun and easy to raise even more money to help patients and their families.

Simply raise £50 and make your pumpkin light, shining brightly in support of all those affected by lung cancer. As a reward, when you arrive at the event, your little monster will receive a golden ticket to access a paid activity of their choice - for free - as well as a chocolatey treat, courtesy of Hotel Chocolat to enjoy.


Every 15 minutes someone is diagnosed with lung cancer in the UK. How you can help:


£35 could fund one hour of lung cancer research.

£60 could pay for a day of training for a lung cancer nurse.

£175 could provide a grant for patients in need.


It's quick and easy to set up and can be shared with family and friends through social media, Whatsapp or by email.


Alternatively, you can set up an online fundraising page at www.justgiving.com/roycastle or download our sponsorship form here to raise money offline.


£4 in advance for adults and children. Under 2’s go free. A small booking fee of 50p applies to each ticket.

£5 on the day for adults and children. Under 2’s go free
