Wallace & Gromit’s A Grand Day Out (to 10 April)

wallacegromitgranddayoutWallace & Gromit and The Kennel Club Charitable Trust are excited to invite people and their dogs to join them and Foresters for A Grand Day Out to raise money to help sick children across the UK and to make a difference for dogs.

During March and April, Wallace & Gromit’s Children’s Foundation and the Kennel Club Charitable Trust are giving you the chance to take part in one of three walks taking place in Bath, Essex and London. Bring your friends and family – and don’t forget the dogs!

With three walk distances to choose from (1.5km, 3km, and 5km), a cracking Wallace & Gromit award for every dog taking part, plus fun and treats for all the family at the finish line, A Grand Day Out is a fun way for dog lovers of all ages and abilities to help sick children in hospitals and hospices and dogs in need of your support.

All they ask is that everyone who takes part raises a minimum of £25 or makes a donation of £5 at the event.
