#Lockdown Dog Walking Challenge

You can still get involved in our walk, why not dedicate a week or a day of dog walking to Alice House Hospice patients and get your dog sponsored on his or her daily walk – how often or how far you walk together is up to you; you could stick to your daily routine, take time to go for an extra-long walk, or set yourselves a challenge to walk a certain distance over a number of days.  Set up a sponsorship page here Doggy Dedication #LOCKDOWN
