Dogs Unite Sponsored Dog Walk is an annual event in Blackpool in support of Guide Dogs. It’s an amazing night with your four legged friend under the Blackpool Illuminations
Normal fundraising opportunities have been greatly restricted in 2020. At this time of the year volunteers would usually be preparing for the sponsored walk through the lights. This year it won’t be possible.
But instead you can join the virtual dog walk and virtual dog show!
