Woofs and Wellies


Ashgate Hospicecare’s sponsored dog walk, Woofs and Wellies, due to be held on Sunday 18th March, has been postponed until Sunday 8th April 2018 due to the adverse weather conditions.
Event organisers have confirmed that the event, which unites all dog lovers across North Derbyshire, has been rescheduled for Sunday 8th April 2018.
Jack Wood, Event’s Manager, says; “Our supporters’ safety is our number one priority and with the statements issued by local police and the met office, we would not feel comfortable with allowing the event to run this weekend.”
Sorry to all of our current participants, we hope that you can make the rescheduled date and join us for this fantastic event.

Event Date: 18th March 2018

Are you ready to go mutts?

Get your wellies ready because it’s time for walkies! You and your four-legged friend could make a difference to patients across North Derbyshire by taking on the Woofs and Wellies sponsored dog walk.

The walk starts at 10am from Ashgate Hospicecare, but please aim to arrive between 9am and 10am to sign in and get ready and raring to go. The route will lead you around the beautiful Linacre Reservoirs and once you’ve crossed over the finish line, your mucky pups will receive a special goody bag and medal!

On the day, there will be local businesses selling lots of dog related products to treat your pampered pooch, as well as other activities for children, adults and the dogs to enjoy. So please do come along to this family fun day!
