Local charities RSPCA Halifax, Huddersfield & Bradford branch and Kirkwood Hospice are delighted to be collaborating on a brand new event after being chosen as Mayor of Kirklees, Gwen Lowe’s, Charities of the Year. The local RSPCA and Kirkwood Hospice, along with the Mayor, are introducing ‘Paws for a Cause’, a charity dog show raising funds for both charities to Sands Recreation Park, Holmfirth on Saturday 18 August,12:00pm-4:00pm.
The event is brand new to the area and the two charities are hoping for success. ‘Paws for a Cause’ is proudly sponsored by Donaldson’s Vets and will include: a fun dog show, Have a Go Agility, local trade stalls, games plus food and drink for all of the Kirklees community and their canines to enjoy. All funds raised on the day will be split 50/50 to benefit both the hospice and the animal charity.
Fay Gibbons, Events Coordinator for RSPCA Halifax, Huddersfield & Bradford said “This is such an exciting opportunity for both of our charities and we’re thrilled to be able to bring the event to the Holmfirth community. We can’t thank Mayor Gwen Lowe enough for all of her encouragement and support, and for choosing our local RSPCA and the Hospice to raise funds for this year. We hope that with the support of the Kirklees community we can raise vital funds for two very important local charities and what better way to support both an animal and human charity by attending a fun dog show! ‘’
‘Paws For a Cause’ is free to attend, suitable for all ages and is sure to be wags of fun, so we really hope you can all join us for the first event of it’s kind in the area.
