Our Home Town  Bala - North Wales

The market town of Bala is located at the head of Llyn Tegid (Bala Lake) - the area around Bala, known as Penllyn, is famous for its lakes and mountain scenery and is ideal for a holiday destination.

The Bala Rotary Club's Wishing Well story


Our Rotary Wishing Well was delivered to us here in beautiful Wales by way of a chain of Rotary clubs handing the well along the route from Exmouth until it arrived here in Bala.

The Bala Challenge Walks

Bala & Penllyn Rotary Club wishes to acknowledge the valuable contribution made to the Bala Challenge by our Sponsors and Supporters, we are very grateful.

The 12th Bala Challenge Charity Walk was held on Saturday 7th May 2016 and it was another success with over 260 walkers testing themselves on a variety of routes including the gruelling 20 miles with over 4,000 ft of ascent. The walkers enjoyed home-made cakes and drinks at the check-points. The funds raised will be a new record.

Watch this site for details of the 2017 Bala Challenge Charity Walks .

Why not use our Challenge to raise funds for your own charity?

  • With four separate walks, ranging from a leisurely two hour guided walk to the full Bala Challenge

  • There is something for everyone, individuals, couples, experienced walkers, runners, groups, families and even dogs (on a lead) are all welcome

  • We give you a donation if you have a group of more than 10 walkers raising funds for a recognised charity (please apply before the event)
