We are sorry to say that we have been forced to reschedule our planned sponsored walk event this weekend as the region sits under an amber weather warning for snow and ice.

Jess Druce, area fundraiser for Severn Hospice, said: “We’ve had to call it
this morning so our lovely supporters aren’t left hanging on. The latest
detailed forecast we have access to shows it snowing through Friday and then
dropping to -7 degrees overnight, before the snow starts up again in the late
afternoon on Saturday. We just can’t rely on the weather and ground conditions
being good enough to have a safe event.

“We’re disappointed and I just feel sorry for all our lovely supporters who
I know were looking forward to getting out there and helping us.”

“Our events are fantastic fundraisers for us and we are always so grateful
for how the community support them so I’m really hoping as many people as
possible can make the new date which will be announced shortly.”

Our Pontesbury Potter attracts hundreds of dedicated walkers and fell
runners to its 13-mile course on the hills around Pontesbury. It raises
thousands of pounds for the charity, which relies on donations to fund the care
it offers people living with incurable illness.
