Charity of the year
Each financial year the Club chooses a local Charity to support through fundraising activities which take place throughout the year. In 2014/15 we donated over £2200 to Walsall Heart Care. In 2015/16 and 2016/17 we have been fundraising for 2 areas of Community First Responders, Featherstone & District CFR and FastAid Black Country CFR, both of whom respond to emergency calls in the areas where most of our members live. Over the two years we have donated £4000 to Community First Responders.
On 3 June 2018 the Club handed a cheque for £2000 to representatives of Canine Partners. They were very grateful to have received such a generous donation, much of which will go to purchasing and training 2 new puppies. As this Charity is such a worthy cause and close to the hearts of all our members, the Club has chosen to continue to fund raise for Canine Partners for this financial year, 2018/19.
On Sunday 1 July we will be holding a Fun Day for members and friends and family and raising funds for our charity. There will be fun dog show events, like most handsome dog, most wagging tail etc., as well as a raffle, cake stand, refreshments. Please come along and join in the fun.
