Great Wimbledon Dog Walk for Charity
April 14, 2018 @ 10:00 am - 12:30 pm
No prizes for guessing it’s the UKs Dog Friendliest Pub, The Hand in Hand!
Following the success of last year’s Great Wimbledon Dog Walk, with a whopping £3000 raised for the Blue Cross pet charity, ‘Walking for Paws’ is back! On Saturday the 14th April London’s pampered pooches (and their two legged friends) will pack to The Hand in Hand, for The Great Wimbledon Dog Walk.
Participants can choose from a scenic 2.4 or 4.4 mile walk through the beautiful Wimbledon Common. Registration beginning at 10am sharp-ie including morning refreshments and an inspirational pup talk from the Blue Cross, the Great Wimbledon Dog walk commences at 11am opened by Wimbledon Village’s most famous four legged celebrity, Shetland pony superstar, The Fantastic Mr Fudge, and concludes back at The Hand with doggy bags and treats for all.
Registration is £16 per entrant. Anyone interested in registering for this paw-some event should contact Christine at firstname.lastname@example.org for your welcome pack and sponsor forms. Early registration is advised to reserve your spot
The Blue Cross doesn’t receive any government funding so relies entirely on the generosity of people like you. They help 40,000 pets every year, more than 30,000 of those through their veterinary hospitals and clinics including local veterinary hospital, Merton Blue Cross.
On the 22nd April Walking for Paws organiser Christine Blackman will be running her 5th London Marathon, dressed as daisy the Dog, for the Blue Cross, hoping to exceed last year’s fur-tastic fundraising total of nearly £6300.
The Hand in Hand has recently been crowned Dog Buddy’s London’s Dog Friendliest Pub for a second year in a row.
