St Georges Day Charity Dog Walk Success!

Earlier this year, we organised the St Georges Day Charity dog walk around Thorney Island in aid of Hounds for Heroes. Due the the success of the trial event, we have begun organising the next St Georges Day dog walk for Sunday 23rd April 2017! We already have renewed support from The Emsworth Business Association and have a new sponsor which is a local organic dog biscuit company – Beautiful Joe’s to treat our furry friends. Attend the event on Facebook here so you can keep up to date.

Hounds For Heroes are a charity based in Petersfield who provide specially trained assistance dogs to injured or disabled men and women from the UK Armed Forces and UK Civilian Emergency Services. Hounds For Heroes provide all specialist training, in addition to covering pet food and vet bills for life for each of these talented pups, at a cost of £30,000 per dog.
Dog Walk Details
Suggested donation is £5 per dog, dogs can bring their owners, family members and anyone else who would like to come along! Additional sponsorship forms can be found online here: http://houndsforheroes.com/get-involved/document-downloads/sponsorship-form/
 
Starting Point: Thornham Lane, just past the Thornham Marina.
Some parking spaces (20 spaces max) have been kindly offered to our event by Thornham Marina – All dogs must be kept on leads here due to heavy vehicles moving around on site.
 
The full walk is approx 8 miles around the Island (approx 3.5 hours). Why not take a picnic and enjoy some refreshments at St Nicholas’ Church or Thorney Island Sailing Club, near the halfway point.
 
For those with little legs looking for a shorter walk there is a gate-to-gate option that doesn’t take you around the full island. Please be aware that livestock graze close to the path so dogs should be under their owner’s control.
 
All donations made will be presented to Hounds for Heroes.

Charity Dog Walk Success!

We’re delighted to announce that our St George’s Day Charity Dog Walk has helped raise £398.35 for local charity Hounds for Heroes.

Our principle chiropractor Philippa comments, ‘Coming from a military family, it has always been important for me to give back to the military community. The event was a great success, and we are now planning for next year’s adventures. It was fun for all the family, and we all enjoyed the beautiful scenery of Chichester Harbour accompanied by a slice of cake baked by Emsworth Cookery School and a bottle of refreshing locally sourced water from South Downs Water who both kindly sponsored the event.’

Charity dog walk Hounds for Heroes Emsworth Chiropractor ChiropracticHounds for Heroes provide specially trained assistance dogs to injured and disabled men and women of both the UK Armed Forces and UK Emergency Services. Through this provision, Hounds for Heroes aim to provide help and practical support leading to an enhanced quality of life. Allen Parton, founder of Hounds for Heroes, comments, ‘This money will assist us in our aims of placing assistance dogs with injured veterans and emergency service personnel, Acorn Health’s event and support really does send such a positive message to those serving Queen and Country that folk at home really do care about them. Every single penny received makes such a huge impact on and difference to our work. We have a great organisation, staffed by serving members of the armed forces, which in itself is fairly humbling, but we couldn’t do it without others help as well.’

Emsworth’s St George’s Day weekend of events was supported by The Emsworth Business Association, Havant Borough Council, Acorn Creative Ltd, South Downs Water, and Emsworth Cookery School.
