Charity Dog Walk in aid of The People’s Kitchen
Dog owners can take part in a charity walk with their canine companions to raise vital funds for the much-loved People’s Kitchen.
The £10 entry fee will include a doggie goodie bag and drink in the bar, with proceeds going to The People’s Kitchen.
The event, on September 29, is the latest fundraising initiative from Sintons to raise money for The People’s Kitchen, which has been chosen by the law firm’s staff as its nominated charity for two years.
The People’s Kitchen, based in Newcastle city centre – close to Sintons’ headquarters, The Cube – supports homeless and vulnerable people living in the city, and helps them to fight hunger and loneliness.
While only shortly into the two-year period of supporting the popular charity, Sintons has already raised hundreds of pounds through an array of initiatives.
David Pritchard, chair of Sintons’ CSR committee, said: “We always try to organise events which are a little bit different, which offer the chance to enjoy a social occasion while raising vital funds for charity.
“Our dog walk is one such event, and the response has been brilliant – while usually people have to leave their pets at home while they go to work events, this time, dogs will be taking centre stage and will even leave with their own goodie bags!
“We know how difficult fundraising is for charities at present, following the challenges of the COVID-19 pandemic and the ongoing cost of living crisis, so we will always to our utmost to generate financial support for The People’s Kitchen – an excellent organisation, run entirely by volunteers, which we are very proud to have as our nominated charity.
“While places are limited and many have been filled, some still remain, and we’d love to see as many people there as possible – with their beloved companions, of course.”
