WANTED! YELLOW, BLACK AND CHOCOLATE LABRADORS IN KENT
- Regional charity aims to set a Kent record at sponsored walk in May –
Labrador Rescue Kent and Borders (LRK) is calling on all Labradors and their owners in Kent (south London and East Sussex) to help make its sponsored dog walk on Saturday, 16 May, the biggest official gathering of Labradors in Kent.
“We know that there are many Labrador owners in Kent and would like to invite them to come and support us and perhaps make a record at the same time” says LRK trustee Caroline Halford.
The world record for the largest single breed dog walk is 700 Labradors and was set in Poland in 2010.
“Whilst we don’t think we will be able to break that record, we would like to set a Kent record instead!” added Caroline.
The LRK sponsored walk at Bewl Water on Saturday 16 May at 9.30am and promises to be fun for all humans and canines. LRK is asking for people
to come and walk their dogs around the course (13 miles).
Owners need to register on the LRK website at www.labrescuekent.co.uk, a sponsorship form will then be emailed back to you or you can sign up to the LRK Justgiving website.
“Most dog owners walk their dogs twice a day and probably clock up at least an hour of exercise” says LRK trustee Caroline Halford, “dog owners tend to be a fit bunch so come and support us and help raise money for those pooches who through no fault of their own need to be re-homed.”
The Cranbrook and Tunbridge Wells offices of estate agency Savills is supporting the event, commenting on the sponsored walk Sarah Simmonds of the Cranbrook office “Savills is delighted to sponsor Labrador Rescue Kent, this is a very worthwhile cause which is close to our “paws”.
