In October 2018, we intended to host a charity dog walk but plans were scuppered by the unpredictable British weather.
High winds and storms meant we had to cancel as the safety of our clients, staff and of course our furry friends is of the utmost importance.
Never-the-less, the Pooches Parade will go ahead on Saturday 16th March at 10.30am in aid of City Dogs Home.
The Education Agency is hosting 15 events across the year to mark this milestone birthday with a focus on fundraising for local charities.
Inspired by The Education Agency CEO of Happiness Jasper Hawkins, the Plinkfizz Pooch Parade aims to gather essential supplies for the rescue centre and asks walkers to bring donations as an “entry fee”.
The walk starts and ends at the The Education Agency office in Trent Vale and is a two-mile flat route with an average walking time of 45 minutes. Donation of any of the following items which are much needed by the shelter include:
- Bedding and sheets (but nothing with stuffing inside)
- Dry and tinned food for small and large dogs
- Tough toys to entertain the pooches
- Doggie treats
We will have a donations box for all items for the City Dogs Home for those who want to donate but can’t make the event.
