Bark for Life charity event sets hundreds of tails wagging

charlie A huge crowd gathered at Rushcliffe Country Park in Ruddington to help fight the disease by raising money for Cancer Research.

Bark For Life is a spin off the popular Relay For Life, but allows participants to bring their dogs along. The light hearted walk saw dogs dressed for the occasion and sporting their free Bark For Life bandannas.

The event was organised by Bella Bidmead, owner of Waggy Tails pet service and her sister Heidi Bidmead, Cancer Research volunteer. The pair aimed to raise £2000 but with £1000 raised before the event, they smashed their target. Having counted £2500 by the end of the day with sponsor money still to be collected.

Each dog was given a goody bag at the end of the 5k and brought out families of all ages. With the event a success, its sure to get bigger and bigger every year.
