Six simultaneous sponsored dog walks across the south-east of Englandheld by veterinary group Pet Doctors have so far raised £2,000 – withdonations still coming in.
The funds have been raised for CHILDREN with LEUKAEMIA, a charity dedicated to fighting Britain’s most common childhood cancer.
More than 125 dogs and owners took part in six three-mile walks, which took place in beauty spots ranging from Witchford Common in Ely to Kingston Ridge in Lewes.
Pet Doctors is matching every pound donated by sponsored walkers up to £1,000, helping the vet group boost funds for the charity which researches the causes of the disease, develops treatments and supports affected families.
“We had a fantastic turnout at all of our walks and were blessed with wonderful weather,” said David Hodges, a senior vet at Pet Doctors. “Everyone who took part seems to have a great time and we’re so grateful for the support we’ve received from our clients and their friends and families. We’re delighted to have raised funds for CHILDREN with LEUKEMIA to help it continue its life-changing work.”
