Janice Greaves by guidedog signThis year the Mayor of Lichfield, Councillor Mrs Janice Greaves and Sheriff of Lichfield Councillor Andrew Smith have chosen two particularly deserving charities to support; Guide Dogs for the Blind and Staffordshire Blood Bikes. 

In keeping with the theme, the Mayor and Sheriff are pleased to announce their first event in support of these charities; a sponsored dog walk taking place on Sunday 9 July. The route is a gentle 3 mile (or 6 mile return) walk from the assembly point at Tippers Builders Merchants on Europa Way along the canal path, finishing at Pool House Veterinary Practice on Fosseway Lane. Walkers, and their four legged companions, are asked to arrive in time for the walk to begin at 10am on the day. Free car parking is available for participants on Tippers car park.

Registration is just £5 and includes tea and cake for the humans and a treat for the canines!

All proceeds will go towards Guide Dogs for the Blind and Staffordshire Blood Bikes, so make sure you get as many friends and family to sponsor you as you can.

The Mayor said “The Sheriff and I are hoping everyone will show their support for these two worthy causes. It costs £5,000 to sponsor a puppy and we very much hope that with the help of the people of Lichfield we will raise enough money to achieve this during our civic year. Our first charity event promises a nice relaxed walk, good company and of course some lovely cake, so please come along and join us”
