Dog Walking

Woofs and Wellies

You will be able to call our Fundraising Team on 01246 567250 to register until 3pm on Friday 12th April. After that time, you will need to register on the day. 
Please note: If you sign up after Wednesday 3rd April, you won’t receive a fundraising pack in the post. You can pick up your walker number on the day. Online entry will close at 5pm on Thursday 11th April.

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 on Sunday 14th April 2019.

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 back to the Hospice (roughly 4.5 miles). Once you’ve crossed over the finish line, your mucky pups will receive a special goody bag and medal!

Back at the Hospice, there will also be a Spring Fair for the whole family to enjoy from 12pm and is free to attend! From cakes and sweet treats to homemade gin and wood fired pizza to treats for your pampered pooch… There are lots of exciting stalls to browse, all to help raise vital funds for the Hospice. There will also be an entertaining dog show by the amazing Richard Curtis as seen on Crufts!

Last year, the event raised an incredible £6,350.83! This could pay for 129 patients to receive a two hour Hospice at Home visit, enabling them to stay in their own homes with their loved ones. So, are you ready to go mutts and help more patients and their families across North Derbyshire access hospice care?

Online entry fee for Woofs and Wellies is just £5 for adults and £1 for children. Entry to the Spring Fair is free.

If you have any questions about Woofs and Wellies, please don’t hesitate to get in touch with our Fundraising Team on 01246 567250 or email fundraising@ashgatehospicecare.org.uk.

P.S. Why not set up a JustGiving page to help raise vital funds for the Hospice? It’s simple, follow this link to create your page. Job done!
