Charity barking up the right tree with canine fundraiser


A fundraiser with a difference has been described as an "excellent way of helping dogs to socialise with others".

Therapy dog charity Wellbeing Animals Guernsey is repeating the popular fundraiser, ‘Ten Walks, Ten Weeks, Ten Parishes’.

It involves a different walk in each parish over a ten-week period starting with St Saviour’s on Sunday 12 September and culminating in the Vale on 14 November

Everyone who completes the first nine stages will be invited to join that concluding group where Harvey, Dr Nikki Brink’s four year old Cavachon, will present ‘personally-signed’ certificates. 

Harvey is due to take over the role of Patron from His Excellency Sir Ian and Lady Corder’s Hungarian Vizsla, Milo during October.

‘The aim is to raise awareness of our charity and get together with other dog owners,” said charity chair Marguerite Talmage.

“All the walks have two options so people can choose between a short stroll or a longer ramble. The walks are an excellent way of helping dogs socialise with others. Participants say they enjoy finding different walks and making new friends.”

WAG dogs visit many establishments including most of the wards at the Princess Elizabeth Hospital, care and residential homes, day centres, the Cheshire Home and schools.

Any dog owners interested in joining the team of volunteers can find out more about what is involved HERE or by emailing woof@wag.org.gg

Passports for the walks cost £10 and can be bought in advance by emailing woof@wag.org.gg and paying on line, at Creature Comforts in the Bouet or the Trim Dog Pet Centre at Pleinheaume.

Short descriptions of each route are included and detailed maps, provided by Digimap, can be downloaded HERE.
