You can still register your four-legged friend for Bark In The Park, the sponsored dog walk raising money for local hospice charity, St Catherine’s.

Canine companions from across Sussex and Surrey are returning to Chesworth Farm, Horsham on Sunday 31 May to raise money for St Catherine’s Hospice.

For just £5 per dog (£10 on the day), your pooch can raise money for a local charity while enjoying all the sights, sounds and smells that Horsham has to offer, as well as the company of other sociable dogs. Entry is free for humans, so the whole family can enjoy the beautiful 3km countryside walking route.

Gabi Field, Community Fundraiser at St Catherine’s Hospice said: “We must raise around £15,000 every day to keep providing free, vital, end of life care and support to local people. Bark In The Park is a way that you can help us reach that all-important total, through helping your dog fundraise for us. Our thanks go to sponsors, Maltman Cosham Veterinary Clinic, and Horsham District Council for providing such a beautiful venue.”

Josie Cosham, Director of Maltman Cosham Veterinary Clinic, sponsor of Bark In The Park, said: “Bark In The Park is a fantastic, different way to support a very worthy local charity, to enjoy the beautiful countryside and spend time with your favourite four-legged friend. We could not pass up the opportunity to sponsor this event once again to help St Catherine’s provide its vital care and we can’t wait to attend the Horsham walk.”
