The Wag this Way walk, took place at 11am on Sunday 24 March, organised by City Hospice, to raise money to fund the vital specialist palliative care they provide to patients with life-limiting illnesses across Cardiff. The Whitchurch-based centre provides medical, nursing and end-of-life care to people in their own homes as well as providing support to families.
The event cost £5 per person to enter – entry for up to two dogs. Upon registering, entrants got an event pack which included a sponsor form to collect donations. Four-legged participants got a City Hospice certificate, a Burns bandana and goodie bag containing Burns pet food and dog-themed treats inside a Limited Edition illustrated tote bag, courtesy of us at Burns Pet Nutrition.
We were one of three companies sponsoring the charity event. Our Burns Nutritionists were also on hand at the event to talk to dog owners about pet health and doggy diet advice. Other event sponsors included Health Vets, which has surgeries in Rhiwbina, Heath, Cyncoed and Danescourt, and Dog Furiendly – a website that hosts information about dog friendly cafes, restaurants, shops and attractions across Wales.
