Great British Dog Walk postponed due to the Coronavirus
We are very saddened to have to announce that we’ve made the decision to postpone all Great British Dog Walk events due to the latest advice from the government regarding the risk of the Coronavirus, which is to stop all non-essential social contact.

We had very much hoped to run the event as normal, as we love holding The Great British Dog Walk and they are an important way of raising funds and awareness to help us train more life-changing hearing dogs. This wasn’t a decision we took lightly and sadly we will suffer losses as a result of having to postpone, but the health and safety of our kind supporters, walkers, staff and volunteers is paramount. We do hope you understand.

Anyone who has already bought a ticket for the walk will be contacted directly with further information.
