Pooches on the Prom – sponsored dog walk in support of the Martlets

Besi Besemar January 30, 2015

The Martlets Hospice, Hove, is looking for four legged friends of all kinds and their walkers to join their sponsored dog walk on Sunday, February 8, 2015.

Pooches on the Prom

POOCHES are asked to raise as much sponsorship as they can and every penny raised will help the Martlets provide end of life care to adults who are affected by terminal and life limiting illness, as well as caring for their families and loved ones.

Clem Hunnisett, Community Fundraiser, said: “Our sponsored dog walk is a fun way to help support the Martlets Hospice.

“Everyone who took part last year had a great time. We had over 150 dogs take part, which helped to raise over £10,000 for the Hospice.”

For many patients having their pets visit them at the Hospice makes a huge difference to their wellbeing, and it is just one of the ways the Martlets Hospice enables people to live well. All the sponsorship raised from Pooches on the Prom will go towards patient care.

Registration is now open and entry is £5 per dog.

The walk starts at the Hove Lawn Café and will go to Brighton Pier and back, or for pooches who like a longer walk, to the end of Madeira Drive and back.

Both routes will set off at 11am.

At the end of the walk all the pooches taking part will be rewarded with a doggy bag and a medal.
