With summer coming to an end and the nights drawing in Nightingale House Hospice is calling on dog owners and their pet pooches to start banishing the winter blues by taking part in their Woofs and Wellies Halloween Fancy Dress Dog Walk.
The walk will take place on Sunday 30th October 2011 at Alyn Waters Country Park in Wrexham at 10.30am.
Dogs and owners are encouraged to enter into the Halloween spirit by dressing up in a costume and there will be a prize awarded for the best dressed dog on the day.
There are two routes to take part in, a 5km Walk and a 3km stroll, both routes will start together from the visitor centre at the Gwersyllt side of the park and is supported by Oscars Pet food and Vets 4 Pets in Wrexham.
The event costs £5 per dog to enter and a sponsor form will also be provided for walkers to collect sponsorship for taking part.
Laura Parry, Community and Events Fundraiser said: “This will be the third Halloween Dog Walk and I personally cannot wait as it is always a lot of fun. It’s great to see everybody dressed up in spooky Halloween costumes and getting in to the spirit to help such a fantastic cause.
“Please help spread the word about this event and get as many of your friends, family and colleagues together to take part as I can guarantee that you’ll all have a great time.”
