The Great British Sausage Walk – thank you to everyone who took part

Sausage walk fundraiser 2018

On behalf of the Breed Council, thank you to Chris Lamb who writes…

I had a little brainwave a few months ago wondering if people would get on board with the concept of a synchronized Dachshund Walk all over Great Britain. The aim was for lots of walking groups to all walk/get together on the same day to socialise, play and raise money and awareness for Dedicated to Dachshunds with IVDD, The Red Foundation and Dachshund Health U.K. with a suggested voluntary donation of £2 per Dachshund. The total going into one PayPal/Bank Account to then be divided between the charities.

I was delighted with the response from the Dachshund community and The Great British Sausage Walk was born!

So, on the 7th October 2018, the following groups held a walk/event raising a total of £2,441.67!

Kent Dachshunds. Lesley Easton

Sausage Dog Friends. Alan Williams

Dachshunds of Cumbria. Sue Fell

Astley Park. Tanya Wright

Sausage Dog Rendezvous. Chris Lamb

Isle of Man. Avril Muller

Derbyshire Dachshund. Tanya Robinson

Cornwall Dachshunds. Pauline Westaway

Fernilee. Nina Moore

Nottingham Dachshund Group. Ginny Bullock

Dachshunds Walking Group. Rosemary Henderson

Teesside. Martin Peagam

Dachshunds Around Glasgow. Jennie Walker

Sausage Dog Walks. South Wales. Charlotte Baldwin.

Absolutely thrilled with the support and hope to do it all again next year!

 

WE ALSO USED THE OPPORTUNITY TO REMEMBER JEFFREY (the Mini Wire who was attacked by another dog and, sadly, died). This enabled us to get more publicity for his Petition.

THANK YOU, EVERYONE.
