Back to Charity and Community

Woofs and Wellies Walk

Customer advisor (and dog lover) Elaine Green of our Wetherby branch decided that a sponsored dog walk ("woofs & wellies") being run by St. Michaels Hospice would be an ideal opportunity for both Wetherby and Boston Spa branch colleagues to give something back to the community.

The well organised event started in ideal weather conditions from the Yorkshire Showground and the 6.5km route took everybody through the lovely countryside around Crimple Valley.

At roughly the half way stage the dogs were treated to ice cream at St Michaels Hospice which was on the route, (very welcome indeed) and yet another surprise was in store at the finish where all the dogs received a present!

Everybody thoroughly enjoyed the event and Wetherby/Boston Spa raised over £860 for the charity.
