The Hunny Bell pub dog, Sheamus, is encouraging his fellow four legged friends to raise funds to change young lives and enjoy a fantastic Sunday morning stroll around the Stody Estate on race day.

This special event is in conjunction with race partner and sponsor, The Hunny Bell pub. Dog walkers will be able to park at The Hunny Bell and set off from 10.45am on the 2.5 mile route.​

  • Interesting, because their website says: Please be advised that for a number of personal reasons we have ceased trading and The Hunny Bell is now closed until further notice.

  • REALITY CHECK... We are becoming a nation of one mass of Charities .. UK stats say.. There are more than 195,289 registered charities in the UK that raise and spend close to £80 billion a year. Together, they employ more than a million staff – more than our car, aerospace and chemical sectors – and make 13 billion 'asks' for money every year, the equivalent of 200 for each of us in the UK.Nov 15, 2014... ... So One has to ask the question .. With the mass of UK wealth that there is, how come there is a growing army of Charites pestering us for money in in so many ways... A real eyeopener to the amount of money wanting ways to get money from us .. While we have so many now earning £200K to £1 Million in the UK and some even using tax avoidance schemes Charites and Food Banhs are growing regardless of wealth in the U.K. ... It just makes you think that there is such a diverse wide gap in the UKs income levels ... Meanwhile To these runners have a safe run and Good Luck to them all... The UK is becoming a very strange country...is it not... But it is nearly always ALL ABOUT MONEY...
