Halloween is just around the corner and with it comes a brand new event for dog and owner at Reigate’s Priory Park.
On Sunday 29 October, take part in a sponsored walk of 3km or 5km with your furry friend to raise money for children with brain injury.
In aid of The Children’s Trust, participants can take part in the costume competition, open for dogs and humans, as well as a post-walk dog show. There will be refreshments en route as well as stalls offering gifts and craft items.
Hannah Beresford-Ward, a dog walker and supporter of The Children’s Trust, is taking part in the event, ” Me and my friends were so excited when we heard about the Halloween Howl. It’s a great idea giving us the chance to walk our dogs, get our children and grandchildren dressed up and outdoors, all while raising money for a very special charity. We can’t wait!”
Tracy Poulton, fundraising manager at the charity, “The Halloween Howl is a lovely opportunity for local people to get together, take on a challenge, and have a bit of fun! 40,000 children are left with a brain injury each year and without fundraising challenges like this we wouldn’t be able to reach out and support as many of these children as we do.”
The event, supported by Happy Buddies and sponsored by Priory Vets, opens at 9am. Entry fee £15, minimum sponsorship target £5o. To register visit their website.
