The Great British Dog Walk, a popular charity dog walk run by national charity Hearing Dogs for Deaf People, is back for a sixth year and is coming to Bodiam Castle in Robertsbridge on Sunday 15th March.
This is the first time the walk has been held at Bodiam Castle which makes it even more exciting.
The venue itself is beyond stunning, and walkers will have the opportunity to walk within the castle’s beautiful surroundings, as well as being on the look out for kingfishers, the resident barn owls and the famous steam train.
Hundreds of walkers of all ages, and dogs of all shapes and sizes, will be taking part to have fun, meet like-minded people and support Hearing Dogs for Deaf People, the charity that trains dogs to alert deaf people to important and life-saving sounds and help deaf people to leave loneliness behind.
The walk is sponsored by Specsavers Audiologists, helping Hearing Dogs to raise more funds to transform the lives of deaf people.
On the day there are two walk options – either 3km or 5km routes, making it ideal for dog owners, families, single walkers, organised walking groups and those who simply want to meet lots of dogs and get a bit of exercise for a good cause.
There will also be fun additional activities at the walk, including a fun dog show and dog agility, as well as tasty food and drink to purchase.
Walkers can get themselves or their dogs sponsored by friends, family and colleagues to raise money to fund hearing dog puppy Oscar’s training journey.
Oscar is a cocker spaniel puppy who has just started his training to become a life-changing hearing dog.
Over the next two years he will be trained to alert deaf people to important sounds, such as the smoke alarm, intruder alarm, alarm clock and cooker timer.
It costs around £40,000 to fully train and support a hearing dog for the duration of its life and Hearing Dogs for Deaf People receives no government funding so every walker will be helping to transform the lives of deaf people.
