Walk for the Animals 2013
Posted 27 June 2013
Animal Aid’s 10th annual sponsored walk was held again on London’s beautiful Hampstead Heath on Saturday 13th July. Thank you to everyone who came along!
Each year the walk has a star sponsored dog and this year it’s Pudding, a dog used for badger-baiting until rescued by the RSPCA. Despite all the injuries and suffering she is the happiest, friendliest dog you can meet. She loves all people, including the vet and always wants to cuddle up on your lap on the sofa, despite never living in a house before. She is a true inspiration, surviving what she’s been through and still having such a positive outlook on life! Pudding is so looking forward to the attention and raising vital funds for our campaign work.
If you have never taken part before, you have missed out on an enjoyable, relaxing and healthy event amongst like-minded people. The walk is 10km (7 miles) in all, but you can go at your own pace. It is spread over four laps. This year there is also a shorter, flatter 1 mile route for those who prefer it.
We meet close to the bandstand, near the Parliament Hill café at 12.45pm. Then at 1pm, we all set off. Vegan Campaigns will be on hand with delicious cold buffet snacks for sale as you complete your laps.
Parking is limited, so we recommend public transport. The following buses take you straight to the Heath: 214, C2 and C11. Kentish Town is the nearest tube and Gospel Oak is the closest main line station. If you are driving, there is a car park at the Lido.
Everyone who completes the walk will receive a certificate signed by Animal Aid’s director, Andrew Tyler, and a glass of bubbly.
If you would like to take part with Pudding, please email Mark Phillips or phone 01732 364546 ext 223 for your registration pack.
