Trefriw Walking Festival is a non-profit making venture; we don’t charge for our walks, and yet staging a major three-day walking festival is a fairly expensive undertaking.  Although virtually everything is done by volunteers, we nevertheless have to find the money every year for items such as our membership of Walkers are Welcome, insurance, hiring the village hall for three days, hosting the website, changing the dates on our banners, getting flyers and posters printed, registering our raffle and getting tickets printed, contributing towards petrol for the minibus, providing refreshments …. the list is long!

Our income comes primarily from:

  •  walkers’ donations for attending walks  (we suggest £10 for a full-day’s walk, and £5 for a half-day walk)
  •  the Grand Draw (we try and sell 1,000 tickets annually) (NOT HAPPENING THIS YEAR)
  •  donations at the Cake Fest (NOT HAPPENING THIS YEAR)
  •  donations for refreshments

We are able to accept cash or card donations – these will be taken on the day.

We are consequently immensely grateful to the following, who enable us to keep the event going from one year to the next:

In addition, in 2017 we joined the Outdoor Partnership, which has an annual membership fee, but which provides and subsidises training opportunities. As a result of this, since then many members of the team have updated their Outdoor First Aid qualifications.

In 2017 we were also awarded a small grant from the SportWales Community Chest, which has paid our training costs and also enabled us to purchase some equipment (such as first aid  kits, maps, ladies’ rucksacks and navigation equipment).
