Wallace & Gromit’s Children’s Foundation and The Kennel Club have teamed up to create A Grand Day Out, a fun packed charity event which raises much needed funds for terminally ill children as well as research for canine diseases. The day involves a host of activities for the whole family – including the family dog!
There are 1.5k, 3k, and 5k walking trails, with loads of activities once you are finished, such as: have-a-go agility, Good Citizen Dog Scheme testing, refreshments, face painting, children’s entertainment such as Punch and Judy, Bouncy castles, a tombola and stands. There will be a cracking Wallace & Gromit award for every dog taking part as well as loads of great treats for all the family.
In order to participate you must raise a minimum of £25 or make a donation of £5 per adult at the event.
