Sponsored Veterinary Hobble 2016

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



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.
