Your dogs raising money for animals in need

Eventually the day of the Charity Fun 5K finally came around after being pushed back from April. Perfect weather for all particiapants, although the registration tent didn't survive the day!

Starting earlly and making sure we were all set and ready for all our human and dog entries. Was great to see a variety of breeds of dogs and of all ages that had come to help us raise some money for NOWZAD and Endeavour Project (Pet Services) who are small charties that always welcome the extra money they recieve. Registration done, warm up completed and off they went, starting through the Woods. 

The course layout took you through some beautiful wooded areas with some water streams to go through, onto the fields with pleanty of obstacles for both human and dog to complete, followed up by the doggy agility field and then heading back homewards to the finish line, where all participants picked up their finishers goodie bag.

We would like to thank all our volunteers who helped out on the day as well as Natures Menu for providing the goodie bags, Fish4Dogs who also provided us with a sponsorship pack, The Bokeh Group for the pictures (all pictures are on our facebook page) and Catterick Saddle Club for the venue. Further details of the amount of money raised for Charity will be released.

Total amount raised is £158.26 which will be split between the two charities.
