A tail-wagging fundraising event for the whole family and their four-legged friends will take place in Wrexham this October.

Paws and boots will make their way through Alyn Waters Country Park (Gwersyllt Side) on Sunday 30 October for the ‘Woofs and Walkies’ sponsored walk.

The fundraising event, in aid of Nightingale House Hospice, is Halloween themed with fancy dress encouraged for the occasion.

There will also be some treats available for the best-dressed dog.

Registration will begin at 1pm and the walk will start promptly at 1:30pm with participants choosing between a 3k and a 5k route.

All furry participants will receive a goodie bag after finishing the route, donated by JML Pets Gwersyllt.

Additionally, to raise extra funds for patient care a raffle will be held with some amazing dog-related prizes kindly donated by local businesses.

There will also be a family photo station, where supporters capture the PAW-fect shot to remember the day.

Events fundraiser Sam explained: “I am delighted that Woofs & Walkies has returned to our fundraising calendar this Halloween.

“As a dog owner myself, I am so excited we are holding a dog-friendly event that the whole family can enjoy.

“I can’t wait to see all the fancy dress costumes. We would also like to say a huge thank you to DTCC for sponsoring this event and for their continued support of Nightingale House.

“We hope Woofs & Walkies can help us to raise lots of funds for our patient care and family support services.”

As an extra sponsorship incentive, participants that raise over £40 will be entered into a prize draw to win a dog photoshoot courtesy of Chelsea B Photography.

Money raised from the event will go towards funding patient care and family support services that the local hospice provides.

Event sponsor, DTCC, commented: “We are delighted to be sponsoring such a fun and family-inclusive event.

“DTCC’s association with Nightingale House has been ongoing for many years, and we are proud to be associated with an organisation that continues to fundraise in these challenging times.”
