Woofs Wellies - The Directory Group



Due to popular demand, The Rowans Hospice is delighted to announce that Woofs & Wellies is returning to the stunning grounds of Stansted Park on Sunday 29th November and once again the event is being proudly sponsored by local veterinary clinic, Sanctuary Vets. A launch event took place at Sanctuary Vets in Farlington on Tuesday 13th October at 11am with the help of some of the PAT Dogs who regularly visit patients at The Rowans Hospice.

Karen Kay, Events Fundraiser at The Rowans Hospice, said: “This event was extremely popular last year with both dogs and their owners dressed in their best Christmas outfits. We are really excited to be able to repeat Woofs & Wellies and look forward to seeing hundreds of pooches and their humans walking around Stansted Park once again. This is a great way to start off the festive season and we hope that local people will support the event. After completing the walk, the doggies will receive a medal and there will be the opportunity to purchase food from the farm shop to warm you up.”

The 3km ‘walkies’ is open to all dogs to register and bring along as many human companions as they like. Registration is £5 per dog and there is a sponsorship target of £25. All the money raised from the event will go to The Rowans Hospice which provides care and support for local people affected by life-limiting illnesses.

Information and online registration is available via the website www.rowanshospice.co.uk or call Fundraising on 023 9223 7142.
