Grove Lodge Vets is to host the first ever Rotary Carnival Fun Dog Show at this year’s August Bank Holiday event in Worthing.
This new canine competition will be open to dogs of all ages, shapes and sizes, and will include traditional dog show classes such as “waggiest tail”, “best sausage catcher” and “child’s best friend”.
Each class costs just £1 per dog and will be judged by vet Marc Abraham, known for giving pet advice on TV programmes such as Daybreak and BBC Breakfast, and currently based at Grove Lodge’s Southwick clinic.
The event will also include a tombola with lots of great prizes to win, including cuddly toy cats and dogs.
The show will be in aid of Chestnut Tree House children’s hospice. This fantastic charity cares for children of all ages with life-limiting illnesses, as well as looking after their families, and serves a huge catchment area encompassing east and west Sussex and south-east Hampshire.
Marc said: “Recently I was extremely fortunate to be given a guided tour of Chestnut Tree House and was truly amazed by the phenomenal staff and ultra-modern facilities available to children and their families. I came away with a much deeper insight into the wonderful purpose of Chestnut Tree House and its invaluable place in our community to provide comfort, support, and best quality of life. It was an amazing experience and one that I’ll always remember.”
Caroline Roberts-Quigley, community fundraiser for Chestnut Tree House, said: “We are so grateful to Marc and Grove Lodge Vets for all their support. The dog show will be a great way for all our two and four-legged friends to support Chestnut Tree House and have fun raising vital funds to enable us to continue providing care for local children and their families.”
- Worthing Rotary Carnival Fun Dog Show will take place on Bank Holiday Monday (August 26, 2013) at Steyne Gardens, Worthing. The dog show will start at 2pm.
