Sighthound Sundays February Walk
Sun 3 February 2019 | 11:30 am - 1:00 pm
Sighthound Sundays is back, join another great walk on Sunday 3rd February 2019 in Victoria Park, London. Starting at 11:30am at the grassy verge next to the Crown Gate, West Park entrance, opposite the Pavillion Cafe.
ON LEAD walk through Victoria Park ending in one of the larger fields for a family photo and an optional run. Followed by walk on to The People’s Park Tavern for a drink/roast. Let the organiser know if you’ll be going to the pub so they can reserve some tables.
There will be 2 whippet and small sighthounds groups which will leave first with their walk leaders and greyhounds/other larger sighthounds will follow after.
This month the event is raising money for SOS Galgo. February 1st is World Galgo Day and marks the end of the Spanish hunting season. This results in 1,000s of Spanish greyhounds, who have already endured horrific treatment, being abandoned and tortured all in the name of ‘tradition’. SOS Galgo has been going for 20 years, they don’t receive any government support and rely purely on donations and fundraising.
Please familiarise yourselves with the walk guidelines posted in the Facebook group and get in touch with the organisers with any questions.
Suggested donation: £3 per dog which can be made on the day or via PayPal at firstname.lastname@example.org
