Sponsored Walk - In Memory Of Freya - 12th August 2018 At Woodall Spa - Meeting 1pm

Please Come and join us on our sponsored walk in memory of our beautiful sponsor dog Freya who we lost so suddenly,

Freya raised such a lot of funds for the recuse in her life here for all her friends and her life was cut short with a sudden illness.

She was such a popular girl and loved everyone who walked through the doors! I don't think I have known one person who didn't want to take Freya home! Unfortunately, she wasn't a dog that could be re-homed although we did try. And her adopted owners who did try and try with her, and who were devasted when she had to come back here, are coming on the walk with us. They always loved Freya. They will be there with Chalky and Xena and I am sure it will be a difficult one for them too.

This walk we are hoping to do each year as Freya was imported in the face of the rescue as was Duke. We would also like this to be a walk to remember all the ones we have all lost and let them all know this is their day.

So come on and join us - it is a sponsored walk but if you cannot get sponsors - that is ok - we have a charity tin there on the day - we can just get people to drop a donation in! Let her Legacy live on.
