Our tail wagging sponsored dog walk is back - bigger and better than ever!

Paws for a Cause is a fun and friendly sponsored walkies and dog show for humans of all ages and your favourite four legged friends.

The furry fun takes place at Riverside Park, where along with a sponsored walk the morning will also feature a fun dog show, K9 Pawformers Dancing Dogs, and stalls chock full of canine goodies! Plus, try your paw at flyball and learn from the Fun Fanatics Flyball Team as they demonstrate this fast-paced doggy sport.

Registration: £10 per dog

Contact the Community and Events Team on 0191 386 1170 ext.5

Sign up by Monday 12th March and receive a deluxe doggy goody bag, a dog rosette and personalised completion certificate for your pooch.

If you fancy showing off your pooch why not enter them into the dog show. You can enter your dog on the day for just £1 per category:

 Happiest Dog

 Best fancy dress

 Most like owner

We also have two routes available on the day; either a 1.5 mile walk on easy surfaces for older dogs and little legs, or a 3 mile walk for pooches who'd like a bit more of a challenge.

Raise Sponsorship

Put your best foot (and paw) forward for St Cuthbert's Hospice by raising sponsorship towards your walkies. Your support really does make a huge difference to the lives of those in our care.
