Bluebell Walks 2014

You can organize a local walk throughout the year in aid of Canine Partners, just contact us with your ideas!

Our aim is to raise funds and encourage families, friends and colleagues to take part in something fun, healthy and worthwhile.  You are more than welcome to bring your dog!

Every penny raised from the registrations fees and sponsorship will help us to train more dogs and meet the demand of people on our waiting list.

So how can you help?

1.  You can organise a walk yourself or with a few friends.
 
We have an organisers pack available which gives you all the

details to help you get started.  We can help promote your

walk locally through press and the website and help with posters, leaflets and merchandise packs.  If you are interested in organising a walk contact us on the numbers below. You can download an event poster here.

2.  You can join one of our walks. 
We need support for all the walks we put on so get together family and friends and enjoy fun time out. You can download a registration form below. 

Bluebell walks are sponsored walks organised by a whole army of volunteers  and supporters like you!

 

How many people can I have?
There is no limit, you can have anything from 5 to 500 people - it's up to you!

How long does the walk have to be?
Again, there is no limit, you choose from 1 to 10 miles, or longer if you wish.

When should I hold the walk?
Ideally between April and June as this is when the Bluebells are expected to be in bloom - this gives you thirteen weekends to choose from, including the May Bank Holiday.

What if I don't have Bluebells near me?
If you want to take part but don't have bluebells growing near you, don't worry, you can still hold a walk in your local woods or park and we will provide bluebell stickers that you can wear instead.

What do I do next?
You can either download the registration form below or apply for the organisers pack by telephoning us on 01730 716013 or contact our Community Fundraising Team by email.

Run, cycle, swim!

07 Apr

It’s all hotting up in the Canine Partners community. Deborah’s swimming like mad, in readiness for her amazing swim across the Solent. Ken’s coming to work with so much lycra he’s barely recognisable. (It’s not just a fashion statement - he also owns a bike). Holly’s getting so excited by all the big bluebell walks she’s organising that she can hardly sit still. And runners all across the south of England are in training for the Bright10 in the autumn. So if you can run, then run. If cycling’s your thing, then by all means peddle like your life depends on it. If it’s swimming that floats your boat, then go and get in that pool. Basically the whole Canine Partners family is doing whatever they can to raise funds and get fit at the same time, all in celebration of the fact that this is our 25th anniversary year.  Read more


Canine Partners’ Leicestershire Training Centre

Canine Partners needs to raise £3.1million to build a second Training Centre in order to train more dogs and change more lives.

We have purchased a site in a village called Osgathorpe, halfway between Ashby-de-la-Zouch and Loughborough, which has a range of barns, outbuildings and associated land. The plan is to replace the barns and adapt some of the outbuildings to create the specialised buildings we need.

Having a Midlands Training Centre will not only increase our output, it will also make the charity far more accessible for those on our waiting list who are unable to make the long journey to our centre in West Sussex. 42% of the applications we received last year were from people living in the mid and northern regions of the UK. Many of our existing partnerships will also benefit from being able to receive support from the new centre.

The site will consist of a training centre and office facilities, fully accessible accommodation and kennelling.

This is an extremely exciting time for Canine Partners and we would be delighted to receive your support.

For more information about this project, please contact Cat Harvey on 01730 716018 or email catharvey@caninepartners.org.uk

Jobs available at the new centre will be advertised on our Vacancies page here: Work for us
