Dog owners invited to 'Grand Day Out'

Tuesday, 3rd July 2012

Dog owners are invited to a walk in the countryside to raise funds for two charities.

The Kennel Club Charitable Trust and Wallace and Gromit's Children's Foundation are hosting their second annual Grand Day Out.

Owners can participate in dog walks and events taking place, as well as hosting their own Grand Day Out.

Events will be occurring at Bristol’s Tyntesfield Park on July 29th, Essex’s Hadleigh Park on the August 19th and Lincolnshire’s Belton House on September 15th.

At these events, there will be bouncy castles, face painting, dog training, tea, cake and dog walks. Funds raised will go towards both charities.

Elizabeth Carrington-Porter, UK member development manager from Foresters, will be sponsoring the event.

She said: "Encouraging all the family to take their four-legged friend out for a wonderful walk in the countryside will not only provide families with a lovely opportunity to spend time together but also help to raise much needed funds for poorly children and dogs throughout the UK.”
