Humphrey's Lantern Walk

13 November 2021

This November, we’re inviting you to join Humphrey Bear in the beautiful surroundings of Heaton Park in support of Royal Manchester Children’s Hospital.

With family friendly accessible routes, walkers can choose from a 2k or 4k distance and there is an autism friendly start line available.

Register here for just £5 per child. We’d love our participating walkers to try to raise a minimum of £35 in sponsorship for their challenge, helping us to fund important projects in support of our poorly young patients here at Royal Manchester Children’s Hospital.

All registered children taking part will receive an exclusive 2021 Humphrey’s Lantern Walk medal, a goody bag and a twinkling light and lantern to light up the route’s tunnel as the sun starts to set.

Those that register before 1st October 2021 will be in with a chance of winning exclusive goodies from Olivia Birchenough from Channel 5’s Milkshake, including a personalised birthday video and a selection of merchandise signed by Olivia herself! Signed items include Milkshake! magazines, hand sanitisers and Charity water bottles. Terms and conditions apply.*

Registration on the day will open at 1.30pm at The Stables Restaurant, and Humphrey himself will wave the first of the walkers over the start line at 3.15pm.

If you can’t join us on the day and would like to take on your own individual Lantern Walk from home or from a location that’s personal to you, that’s no problem – select the virtual registration option on our form to let us know.

If you have any questions at all, please contact the community fundraising team on  or 0161 276 4522.
