Westgate Ark would like to hold such an event in the summer of 2017, though no plan has been made yet! Anyone who has some great ideas for this, or who would like to help arrange an event, then please do contact Westgate Ark!
Our sponsored walk in July raised funds for the treatment of poorly cats rescued by Westgate Ark Cat Homing Centre.
The event followed 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.
The event was reasonably successful on the day raising over £1,000 for veterinary treatment.
The walk started from the Westgate Ark Cat Homing Centre in Prospect Place, (off Westgate Road), Newcastle Upon Tyne, NE4 6PH. The destination was Moorview Veterinary Centre, Station Road, Backworth, NE27 OAA.
