Hospice Launches New Fundraising Dog Walk

St Elizabeth Hospice is calling all dog owners and their four-legged friends to take part in the charity’s new fundraising activity, Take My Lead, this May. 

From dachshunds and dobermans to Labradors and every pooch in between, dogs of all shapes and sizes are welcome to join Take My Lead. 

Taking place from 10am on 15th May, Take My Lead will give participants the exclusive opportunity to explore the stunning grounds of Woolverstone Hall (WOOFerstone Hall) and surrounding countryside as part of the hospice’s brand new canine challenge.

The family-friendly event offers a choice of a 5km or 10km route in the 80 acres of rural parkland overlooking the River Orwell, with the Grade I listed manor house providing a stunning backdrop, and there will be plenty of smells and sniffs to get noses twitching and tails wagging.


Joanne Rodger, events and challenges manager at the hospice, said: “We are delighted to announce the launch of Take My Lead, which will give dog owners and their four-legged friends the chance to explore the beautiful Woolverstone Hall.

“As well as offering the opportunity to explore the sights and smells of the parkland, Take My Lead will also help us raise vital funds for the hospice and our work in the local community. There really is no need to ‘paws’ for thought, so please do register for Take My Lead and we look forward to seeing you all in May!”

Refreshments and food will be available to purchase on site and participants are welcome to bring picnics to enjoy on the day.

Tickets cost £10 for one adult and one dog, with £6 per additional adult and £4 per additional dog. All 17s and under go free.

All dogs who sign up will receive a special bandanna and registration must be completed by 12pm on 12th May.
