Sponsored Veterinary Hobble 

A symbolic cat on a stretcher will be carried the eight mile distance by our intrepid volunteers!


Sunday 24th July 2016 

11 a.m start

Needed urgently - volunteers to help take part in our sponsored walk on 24th July to raise funds for the treatment of poorly cats rescued by Westgate Ark Cat Homing Centre.

We do not yet have enough people taking part in this event. Please support the cats by joining in this fun walk which follows closely the 7.8 miles travelled by poorly cats here when on the veterinary run to our veterinary partners who are Moorview Veterinary Practice in Shiremoor/Backworth.

You do need need to raise a fortune in sponsors. It is great if you can get some pledges of sponsorship in, but please anything is better than nothing and we really would like to see as many people as possible supporting the event!
