Purple Wag and Walk fun-run date at Petworth House

CANINE Partners, a charity that provides highly trained assistance dogs to people with disabilities, is inviting members of the local community to take part in its Purple Wag and Walk fun-run.

The event is taking place on Saturday, September 30 at Petworth House.

Canine partners are encouraging people to take part with their dog, as long as it is kept on a lead at all times.

There will be a choice of 5km or 10km routes through the grounds of Petworth House and participants can walk, run or jog.

Those taking part will receive a Wag and Walk support pack, t-shirt (adults only), Canine Partners hairy head band, two-for-one entry into Petworth House, dog bandana, finishing medal and certificate.

Organiser Libby Rome from Canine Partners said: “The event can be taken competitively or walked leisurely but will be an enjoyable way to raise funds for a locally based charity that transforms the lives of people with disabilities.”

Entry is £12 and those under five go free, in addition each adult must raise a minimum of £50 and children a minimum of £20. Register by calling Libby Rome on 01730 716014 or visiting www.caninepartners.org.uk
