Organise a bluebell walk – change a life!


National charity Canine Partners, who provides specially trained assistance dogs to people with disabilities, is calling for outdoor enthusiasts to organise a bluebell walk during April or May. As Canine Partners celebrates its 20th anniversary, this campaign will help to raise vital funds for the ongoing work of the Charity.

In 2009 Canine Partners placed 40 dogs in the community to assist people with disabilities, each dog costing in excess of £9,000 to train.  The Charity hopes to increase its support for over 100 applicants currently on the waiting list for a canine partner. Now in its 7th year, The Bluebell Walk Campaign has to date raised £85,000 for Canine Partners.

Malcolm Wells, head of community fundraising at Canine Partners, comments, ”Walks can be for any number of people, covering any distance or terrain.  Dogs are welcome, but not a necessity and bluebells are optional!  If you would like to help us set up a walk in your area, please get in touch.”

All Walk Organisers will be sent a free information pack containing details on how to make the walk a great success, as well as sponsorship forms, posters, pens.  Canine Partners is also happy to help publicise local walks to ensure the highest level of participation.

Do visit our website www.caninepartners.org.uk or call Jean Palmer on 01730 716014 for further information on organising a Bluebell Walk or identifying a walk near you.
