Been asked to give this a plug - came in too late to go in the magazine:
A fun sponsored walk has been organised in Manchester to raise funds for the local RSPCA branch and the animals of Iraq and Afghanistan.
The 2nd Nowzad Dogs and RSPCA Manchester & Salford Branch Mutt Strutt takes place on Saturday 18 September between 11am and 1pm.
The walk is a gentle 5km in the beautiful surroundings of Boggart Hole Clough, Manchester. Participants are required to raise a minimum sponsorship of £10 or make a one-off donation of £15, and all money raised will be split equally between the two charities. Nowzad Dogs rescues stray and abandoned animals, such as dogs, cats, horses and donkeys, in Iraq and Afghanistan.
The event is sponsored by James Wellbeloved, all walkers will receive a goody bag and there are prizes for raising over £50. Free microchipping is also available for Manchester residents courtesy of Manchester City Council, and the Nowzad and RSPCA stalls will be stocked with merchandise.
