Lincolnshire hospice to host second sponsored dog walking event

13th January 2015

Some of last years supporters and their dogs

On Sunday 8th March from 9:30am, St Barnabas Lincolnshire Hospice will be hosting its 2nd annual Paws 4 a Cause event. The walk will be lead by ‘Imp’ the Golden Retriever and the events mascot.

The walk leaves from Woodcocks at Burton Waters and owners can choose to walk two, four or six miles with their dogs to raise money for St Barnabas Lincolnshire Hospice.

Ben Petts, Community Events Fundraiser for St Barnabas Lincolnshire Hospice, said:

“Last year we had such a positive reaction from our local community that we just had to bring Paws 4 a Cause back for a second year. In total we raised £2,000 and we are hoping to top that figure this year.

“Similar sponsored dog walking events are also rolling out across the county so even more members of our community and their furry friends will be able to take part.

“Our Lincoln walk will take our supporters and their companions through picturesque surroundings and it is sure to get those tails wagging.”

The walk will start from Woodcocks at Burton Waters, Burton Lane End, LN1 2BE. Registration is from 9:30am with the walk starting at 10:00am.

Registration is £5.00 per dog and each dog taking part in this event will be given a free doggy-bag to take with them along the walk. Owners can register their dog online at:
