What a great day we had at Hope Rescue’s Waggy Walk fundraising event on 10th December in Whitmore Bay on Barry Island.

Walkers, both furry and human, joined forces under the dry skies, with even the sun making a timely appearance.

The dogs stole the show in an array of fabulous outfits, complete with their brand-new Hope Rescue bandanas. Everyone enjoyed a delightful afternoon filled with wagging tails, laughter, and community spirit.

We’re delighted to say that the event raised an incredible £1,723 including support from our event sponsor, Vanzone. Their sponsorship means that all of the money raised from the event will go directly towards the rising costs of our work helping the most vulnerable dogs in our communities.

Vanzone is proud to sponsor the Waggy Walk fundraising event, where dogs and their humans came together for a joyful day on Barry Island. The event raised an incredible amount thanks to the generosity of participants and our community. Our support reflects our ongoing commitment to the welfare of Hope Rescue dogs. Special thanks to everyone who made this event a success.

Thank you to everyone who attended the event, including our amazing volunteers, and to our event sponsor.

Thank you also to the pawsome dogs that came along and every single person that took time out of their Christmas period to support us.


We look forward to seeing you at our next event.
