The Leigh Arms pub, Northwich, will host a special dog show to raise money for a local animal rescue service.
The event will see dogs (and in some cases their owners) compete to be crowned ‘perfect pooch’ in several different categories including best rescue, fancy dress, junior, best ‘six’ legs (including owner), cutest dog and an egg and spoon race with owner and dog!
The event was the brainchild of Leigh Arms licensee Joanne Higham and really came to fruition when she teamed up with Willows Veterinary Surgery in Hartford who are sponsoring the event.
“We have done several different dog events in the past but nothing on this scale” said Joanne. “We’ve had a lot of interest already and we are looking forward to spending a day with our four legged pals.”
The day, all in aid of Tails Animal Rescue, will aim to raise over £1000 and raise awareness for the service.
Along with the dog competition there will also be a tombola, raffle and a special dog display by Cheshire police.
Joanne said: “If you are a dog owner, we encourage you to come down to the Leigh Arms and get involved! It’s for a very worthy cause and will hopefully be an unforgettable event!”
Registration opens at noon with the event starting at 1pm on Saturday 24th May. The Leigh Arms will be serving food and Robinsons cask ale throughout the day.
The Leigh Arms is located at Warrington Rd, Little Leigh, Northwich, Cheshire CW8 4QT.
