Trolley fundraiser through Newark raises thousands for Boxer dog rescue charity

0

A cart pulled through a town has raised over £1,000 for a dog rescue charity.

Lincolnshire, Essex, Trent, Tyne, Wear and Tees Boxer Rescue (LETTBR) organized the fundraiser to support its work caring for the Boxer breed.

The cart was pulled from K9 by Natural World, Beacon Hill Road, through downtown Newark to The Lord Ted, Farndon Road, by members of the Farndon Dog Club.

Carol Murfin of LETTBR said: “It was amazing. We stopped at some businesses and there were people donating on the street.

“When we finished at the Lord Ted parking lot, it was very busy.”

The cart pull raised more than £1,000 through sponsorship forms and a bucket of donations, as Taya Dixon – complete with Boxer face paint – and Carol’s 12-year-old boxer Remi , were pulled through the city in the wagon.

All money raised will go to support dogs rescued and rehomed by the charity, including vet bills, kennel fees and food for the Boxers.

Carol added: “We’re always thinking of ways to raise money and have fun at the same time.

“We did a three-way race through town last year and this year we were looking to go on a horseback ride, but we couldn’t find the horses.

The cart was accompanied by dogs previously rehomed by LETTBR, who enjoyed a walk in the sunshine to support the charity that found them their forever home – with water stops along the way.
