Local Hospice Looking For Most ‘Pawsome’ Pooches

Much loved local charity Martlets Hospice is calling for Brighton & Hove’s most pawsome pooches to take their owners for an extra special Sunday stroll on 26th March.

Pooch 2The popular event “Pooches on the Prom” is a sponsored dog walk along Hove Prom to raise funds for Martlets. With a choice of two routes dogs of all shapes and sizes are being encouraged to sign up. Everything the dogs raise in sponsorship will help Martlets provide life changing hospice care for local people when they need it most.

Pooches on the Prom starts at the dog friendly Big Beach Café and dogs, or their owners, can chose to stroll to the Peace Statue and back or take the longer route to Brighton Pier. With prizes for the best dressed pooch there’s sure to be some well-dressed entrants enjoying a walk along the prom.

Every pooch taking part gets a well-earnt medal and a doggy bag as a thank-you for their efforts in raising as much money as they can for the Hospice.

Clem Hunnisett, Community Fundraiser at Martlets Hospice said: “This is the ‘must-do’ event of the year for generous-hearted pooches and their owners; raising essential funds that will help us to care for our patients and their families.

“This year we’re hoping that more than 100 dogs and their owners will take part in this fun family event to help us to raise over £4,000 for the Hospice.

“Registration is £7 per dog but accompanying humans can take part for free!”

For many patients having their pets visit them at the Hospice makes a huge difference to their wellbeing, and it is just one of the ways Martlets Hospice enables people to live well.
