The historic Goodwood Motor Circuit might be more famous as the location for the Revival but this November, the track will be playing host to dogs rather than cars as it stages the very first Goodwood charity dog walk in aid of Canine Partners UK.
From midday on Sunday 3rdNovember, following the Breakfast Club event at the Motor Circuit, Goodwood invites dogs of all shapes and sizes to bring their owners for a walk around the 2.4 mile circuit. Follow in the tyre tracks of motorsport greats such as Sir Stirling Moss, Jackie Stewart and Jim Clark, explore the former Battle of Britain airfield and see the circuit from a completely different perspective.
Tracey Greaves, Goodwood’s Chief Commercial Officer said: “We look forward to seeing lots of four-legged guests with their well-behaved owners for a unique walk around the motor circuit to support our chosen charity, which does amazing work to help people with disabilities live independent lives.”
There will be entertainment from the Chichester City Band, refreshments and the chance to meet some of the Canine Partners and their assistance dogs.
People can find out more about how the work of this Midhurst–based charity transforms the lives of people living with physical disabilities. The specially trained dogs bring greater independence and quality of life to their human partners, offering security, companionship and practical help with everyday household tasks.
There is no need to pre-register for the event and admission is free, with a suggested charity donation of £10 per dog. All dogs must be kept on a lead.
