Oli’s Safari Park Walk is back raising money for Alder Hey

Alder Hey Children’s Charity mascot Oli the Elephant has packed his bags and is off to Knowsley Safari Park for his annual charity walk.


Oli’s Safari Walk has become a wildly popular event charity event with over 1,200 people taking part last year. Not only is it a fabulous family day out, registration and sponsorships help make a remarkable difference to the young patients at Alder Hey.

Oli is looking for people to join him on his next walk which takes place on Sunday 12th May 2019.  It entails a 3km walk around Knowsley Safari Park followed by amazing value access to the Safari Park. A family pass still costs just £20, adults cost £10 and children cost £5.

Alder Hey Children’s Charity raises vital funds to help make Alder Hey a truly world class, patient-friendly hospital for the 275,000 patients and families it cares for every year. Without the support of charitable donations, and from events like this, many of the outstanding facilities and innovations at

Alder Hey wouldn’t be achieved. The Charity helps fund a range of activities and projects which are designed to enhance and improve the lives of their patients, including funding special projects such as play specialists and the arts for health programme, on ward chefs, specialist equipment and research.

Helen Hughes from Alder Hey Children’s Charity said: “Once again we are incredibly grateful for the support of Knowsley Safari Park for helping us put on this event which goes from strength to strength every year. It’s a the perfect walk for everyonewith it’s pram and wheelchair friendly route, taking you through woods that you wouldn’t normally get to see at Knowsley – and of course you get full access to the park afterwards which is incredible value- and you’re supporting Alder Hey. We can’t wait to see you all there!”
