Online sponsored dog walk #BubbleWoofWalk

A local Cumbrian animal charity is organising a Covid-safe 5-mile sponsored dog walk – hence the name ‘BubbleWoofWalk’ – to be completed by January next year.

Every year, supporters of Oak Tree Animals’ Charity go to the Charity’s site in Wetheral to enjoy fundraising events such as Seasonal Craft Fairs, Dog Shows, Fright Night and Sponsored Challenge Events. These are great opportunities to share information about the work Oak Tree does on-site and in the community, and of course also to raise much-needed funds to enable the Charity to continue helping animals in need.

Mieke Tennant, Events Coordinator explains “This year, with the coronavirus restrictions, all those events had to be cancelled, which inevitably led to a big drop in our income from fundraising. With the animals in our care still relying on us, we have now organised an exciting Oak Tree-style sponsored dog walk, enabling all our loyal and new supporters to help us fundraise in a safe, fun and very dog-friendly way. We are very much looking forward to seeing and hearing from all of you on your #BubbleWoofWalk adventures!”

Walk 5 miles for Oak Tree Animals’ Charity in one go, or spread out over several days/walks. Sponsorship can be raised via Sponsorship Form and/or an online JustGiving page. All entrants receive a sponsor pack with a #BubbleWoofWalk badge per person plus a Hi Viz slap band, bandana and a few nice treats for every furry entrant. There are Oak Tree tote bags and hoodies to be claimed for entrants who manage to reach special fundraising milestones. It only costs £15 per bubble (up to 6 people and minimum of 1 dog) to register!
