Shake off the January blues and join the Sighthound Sundays Group for their Sighthound Sundays February Walk and a Sunday stroll through Victoria Park.
Meet the group on the large grassy verge next to the Crown Gate, West Park entrance, opposite the Pavilion cafe.
The group will have an ON LEAD walk through Victoria Park ending in one of the larger fields for a family photo and an optional run.
Afterwards it’s on to The People’s Park Tavern for a drink/roast. Please let the group organiser know if you’ll be coming to the pub so tables can be reserved.
There will be 2 whippet and small sighthounds groups which will leave first with their walk leaders and greyhounds/other larger sighthounds will follow after.
This month the group is raising money for SOS Galgo. February 1st is World Galgo Day and marks the end of the Spanish hunting season. This results in 1,000s of Spanish greyhounds, who have already endured horrific treatment, being abandoned and tortured all in the name of ‘tradition’. SOS Galgo has been going for 20 years, they don’t receive any government support and rely purely on donations and fundraising.
Suggested Sighthound Sundays February Walk donation is £3 per dog and can be made on the day or via PayPal firstname.lastname@example.org
