Nearly 200 dogs made their way for a stroll around the grounds of a Preston hospice.


St Catherine’s Park was the venue for a two and a half miles of the sponsored walk by pooches and owners.

Preston Agility Dogs were one of the star attractions putting on a number of jaw-dropping displays.

Britain’s Junior Miss Eli Westwood attended and set the dog walkers on their way during the event on Saturday (23 September).

Head of community engagement at St Catherine’s Hospice Emma Jacovelli said: “We’d like to say a huge thank you to all of our four-legged friends and their owners who came out to support
Bark in the Park.

“It was wonderful to see so many different breeds of all shapes, sizes and ages gathered together in our grounds and enjoying the stalls and attractions. Events like these are so important to St Catherine’s – not only to do they raise important funds to help us provide our specialised care, they offer an opportunity for our community to come together and enjoy a day out, all while supporting their local charity.

“Special thanks also go to all the stall holders and volunteers who ensured the day ran smoothly, and of course to Ian Routh and Preston Agility Dogs for all their help organising and putting on a fantastic event.”
