The Big Beach Walk Returns!

We are hosting the second Big Beach Walk, to raise money for the Homeless Hounds Charity, on Ainsdale Beach in Southport, on Saturday 25th January.

So, if you are looking to get fit for 2020, if you want to blow away the January cobwebs or you and your four-legged friend would simply like to take to the sands for a walk, games and picnic then sign up, don your wellies and join us!

The Big Beach Walk will start at 10 am, from the entrance to Ainsdale beach, where we will set off for a stroll along the beach and through the dunes, before stopping to play some fun games. The games will include; race to the sea, hide and seek (with treats), fun fetch, a battle to reach the top of the dunes and there are prizes for the winners! 

At the end of the Big Beach Walk, we will set down our blankets for a winter’s picnic where everyone is invited to bring their own food, for themselves and their dogs (warm soup is the best option!). The morning will culminate in a prize-giving ceremony for the challenge winners and their four-legged friends, with all guests to leave with a doggie bag as a thank you for joining us!

Imogen Ascroft, Home Truths Sales Negotiator, said: “On our first Big Beach Walk in September, we all had a great time even though the weather was horrendous. This time we are all keeping our fingers crossed for a dry day so that even more people and their dogs will join us to raise as much money as possible for this fantastic charity.”

Tickets for the Homeless Hounds Big Beach Walk are priced at £10 per adult, £5 per child (under 16) and OAP’s, and  £20 for a family ticket (2 x adults 2 x children). All proceeds will go to the Homeless Hounds Charity.
