Dog walk will raise funds for The People’s Kitchen
Dogs and their owners can help raise vital funds to support vulnerable people in Newcastle by taking part in a charity event.
The dog walking event involves a 5k walk along Newcastle Quayside, with a stop off at Tyne Bar for refreshments for dog owners and their pets alike.
Always a popular event, the Sintons charity dog walk attracts dogs and their owners from far and wide, who help to raise money for The People’s Kitchen – the law firm’s current nominated charity and the focus of its fundraising efforts.
The People’s Kitchen has been supporting people in need across Newcastle for 38 years, and offers food and friendship to those battling loneliness, homelessness and poverty in the city.
In the current cost of living crisis, the charity’s resources have never been more in demand, with Sintons already raising thousands of pounds for The People’s Kitchen, with more funds set to come in the remainder of its two-year commitment.
The dog walk, which will take place on April 27 from 5.30pm, will help to generate more money through the £10 entry fee for every dog/owner team, which includes a drink at Tyne Bar and a doggy goodie bag.
David Pritchard, head of the CSR committee at Sintons, said: “Our charity dog walk is always a particularly well-attended event, with dog owners able to bring their beloved pets along to what is a really welcome social opportunity, which also raises vital funds for charity.
“The People’s Kitchen is helping countless people in need in Newcastle during these very challenging economic times, and we are supporting them in every way we can – through staff volunteering their time and through fundraising through events like this charity dog walk.
“We hope as many dog owners can join us as possible for a walk along the Tyne and a drink – and even a gift for their pet!”
* The charity dog walk will be held on Thursday, April 27, from 5.30pm to 7.30pm, with participants meeting in the Forth Banks car park at 5.25pm. The entry fee is £10. To register, contact or 0191 226 7802.
