Douglas Macmillan Hospice is delighted to announce it’s first ever dog walking event 'Woofs & Wellies'; which takes place at the Trentham Estate on Sunday 13th October at 10am.

Registration will be on-the-day for the event, with a £5 fee per dog which the first walker going free. 

All other members of the family can then take part for £2.50 each.

The walk will encompasses the Trentham Estate itself before taking walkers on a three mile route to the North Park site where trees from the Hospice’s Dedicate a Tree campaign can be viewed.

Limited numbers of bottled water will be available, but walkers are advised to bring their own water bowls for their dogs for hygiene reasons.

Each dog that completes the walk will receive a commemorative dog medal.

Liz Clarke, Head of Fundraising commented,

“The Trentham Estate is such a beautiful area of North Staffordshire, I cannot think of a better place to take your dog out.

“We had a lot of people take part in our Family 5K Run/Walk with their dogs and we thought this would be a great way for dog owners to raise funds for the Hospice.

“All monies raised from this event will help the Hospice continue to care for local people of North Staffordshire facing a life limiting illness.”
