Bluebell Walks 2005 Campaign [10/03/2005]
Canine Partners, a charity specialising in providing highly trained assistance dogs to people with disabilities, recently launched its Bluebell Walks 2005 Campaign, supported by Purina PetCare. The Charity is currently looking for Walk Organisers throughout the country that want to set up an event in their area as a way to raise funds for Canine Partners, as well as establishing a fun and healthy day out for all the family.
The Bluebell Walk Campaign has grown from the overwhelming success of local walks held each year during May by loyal Canine Partners supporters. The intention is for a number of sponsored walks to take place from 23rd April-8th May 2005, when the bluebells are expected to be in bloom. These walks will give supporters the opportunity to get together with family, friends, work colleagues and others to take part in something fun and worthwhile, with many including BBQs, raffles, lunch, refreshments and more.
"A Bluebell Walk can be for 5-100 people covering distances from 1 mile to 10 miles and participants don’t even have to own a dog," comments Malcolm Wells from Canine Partners. "If there aren’t any bluebells growing in your area, you can still hold a walk in your local woods or park and we will provide bluebell stickers for you to wear instead! We ask anyone interested in setting up a walk in their local area to get in touch with us for more information."
All Walk Organisers will be sent an information pack containing details on how to make the walk a great success, as well as sponsorship forms, posters and merchandise. Canine Partners are also happy to help publicise local walks to ensure the highest level of participation.
