The walk at the Haywards Heath garden on Sunday, June 13, is one of six Big Dog Walks taking place this year.

Dogs Trust, the UK’s largest dog welfare charity, is the charity partner for this year’s series of walks and team members are hoping it will be a chance to meet up with its former residents.

Russell Benson, community fundraising team manager for Dogs Trust, said: “We are so excited that the Big Dog Walk is coming to Sussex. It’s always wonderful to spend time with our dogs, and that has certainly been true over the last year given the difficult times everyone has faced.

“For dog lovers and their canine companions to now be able to get back together and take part in the Big Dog Walk at Borde Hill is fantastic and we’re hoping that lots of ex-residents of Dogs Trust will join in the fun.

“Anyone taking part will be able to raise funds for Dogs Trust and every penny will help us make sure we can continue to give the dogs still in our care everything they need until they find their forever homes.”

As well as taking part in the walk, dogs and owners can enjoy activities such as a dogstacle course, shopping, expert advice, and a dog show.

Nicole Cooper, managing director of Touchpoint Live Media, organiser of the Big Dog Walk, said: “Supporting charities is at the heart of the events and has been for many years, and there has never been a more important time to support charities than following the pandemic, that’s why we are delighted to be partnering with Dogs Trust.

“We look forward to welcoming our dog loving community in Sussex back to the Big Dog Walk series this year and look forward to seeing everyone at Borde Hill.”
