Dog owners in Spalding are being urged to make their pet pooches heroes by taking part in a charity walk.
A sponsored Dogs Unite event is being held at Ayscoughfee Gardens on Sunday in aid of Guide Dogs, the charity which raises money to create more life-changing guide dog partnerships.
This is a great opportunity for families to come out with their dogs for a different walkKate Alexander, the volunteer Guide Dogs organiser
Kate Alexander, the volunteer local branch organiser, said: “This is a great chance for families to come out with their dogs and enjoy a different walk, socialise their dogs and let their dogs be heroes for the day.
“As a huge thank you for their support, each pooch will receive a certificate and dog tag to wear proudly on their collar on completing their walk.”
With dog walkers spending more than 382 hours walking their pets every year, Dogs Unite is becoming a popular series of sponsored dog walks taking place around the country.
The Dogs Unite event in Spalding promises fantastic fun for all the family and their pet, who can dress up in a special hero cape.
Dog owners can be sponsored to walk around the beautiful gardens alongside Spalding’s local guide dog heroes, Ossie, Pickles, Nana, Barclay and Illya.
There will be tombolas, lucky dips and a chance to have your photo taken with some of our local guide dog heroes and their owners.
Ayscoughfee Cafe will be selling puppy inspired cakes on the day to raise money for the Spalding branch of Guide Dogs for the Blind.
You can sign up to this event online at www.guidedogs.org.uk/dogs-unite find it on Facebook by searching Dogs Unite, or pick up a sponsorship form at Ayscoughfee Café or Museum.
Walkers can also just turn up on the day at 2.30pm.
There is no fee for taking part in the walk, however if you are not being sponsored there is a suggested donation of £1 for the cape.
