Woof Run returns to Solihull in aid of St Basils

Solihull Editorial 19th Jan, 2023   0

POOCHES are being called on to take on an obstacle course in Solihull to raise funds for a homeless charity.

The Woof Run at Brueton Park will have challenges like the canine clamber, a zigger-zagger and a paw-paw for dogs to face in aid of St Basils Homelessness Charity.

Dogs of all ages can take part and participants will get a medal and a finish line picture as a souvenir

St Basils say the money raised on March 12 from dogs getting sponsored to do the event will go back into the Solihull community to help more vulnerable young people in at risk of homelessness.

Barrie Hodge, head of fundraising for St Basils said: “We are very excited to be back in Solihull this Spring for our wonderful doggy event in the beautiful surroundings of Brueton Park.

“We would like to thank Solihull Council for allowing us to use the park and of course all the lovely Solihull folk who have already signed up for the event.

“Unfortunately, with the cost-of-living crisis, the West Midlands has seen an increase in homelessness since last year, and Solihull is among the areas suffering.

“All the money raised will make a huge difference to the services we run in the local area and help keep young vulnerable people safe and secure.”
