Paws in the Park to raise money for Hospice

Dog lovers are being urged to round up their furry friends as Barnsley Hospice’s Paws in the Park event returns to Cannon Hall (pictured) next month.

The sponsored 2.5km walk through the grounds and the village of Cawthorne takes place on Sunday, 19 August, at 10:30am and is followed by a dog show – with classes including ‘waggiest tail’ and ‘scruffiest mutt’.

Entry to the walk is £6 per dog, which includes a bandana, certificate and ‘doggy bag’. Show classes cost £2 per entry.

Martyn Hughes, events fund-raiser at Barnsley Hospice, said: “This event is a must for dog lovers and a highlight of our summer fund-raising calendar. It’s a great opportunity to enjoy a walk in stunning surroundings, while raising money to help the hospice continue its care.

“The dog whose owner raises the most money in sponsorship will be the face of next year’s event, so if your four-legged friend fancies itself as a canine celebrity, start fund-raising today!”

This year’s Paws in the Park event is sponsored by Abbey Vets in Barnsley.

To book your place on the walk, call 01226 244244 or go to www.barnsleyhospice.org. Entries for the dog show are taken on the day.
