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.
