sponsored walk

Venue: Bishop Auckland
please support Barbara Bates in her sponsored walk for us- good luck Babz!!! if you would like to sponsor Barbara click donate button or email
On Thursday 31st May a work colleague and I are doing a short sponsored walk in fancy dress from my Funeralcare office in Shildon to Bishop Auckland Town Centre via the bypass, it’s around 4 miles and The Co-operative Funeralcare, always keen to help in the community, is allowing us to do this fundraising during work time for which my colleague Julee and I are very grateful.
Julee will be going as a dog and raising money for Hope Animal Sanctuary near where she lives in Loftus and I will be a cat and raising funds for Cats Protection Wear Valley & Darlington Branch. My theme will be the importance of neutering and micro-chipping cats, or, in short, responsible cat ownership. Once we reach Bishop Auckland Town Centre we will be doing a couple of hours of street collecting and I have CP stickers, gonks and balloons to give away. We are hoping to raise at least £100 each for our charities and if we do The Co-operative Booster Fund will give each of our charities another £100, making them £200 each.
(Thank you to The Co-operative Group.)
As an unneutered queen without kitten-care I will have to take my latest litter with me and have been given a pushchair to transport my babes in, oh if only I had been spayed as a kitten!
If anyone feels they would like to sponsor me, no matter how little per mile, I’d be very grateful, but also I don’t want anyone to feel pressured or obliged. It should be a bit of fun, I have to make my costume yet, but I really hope to make a good amount for CP who rehomed three of the abandoned cats last year and ended up with some hefty vet bills.
