Paws 4 Pilgrims – Cancelled

Sunday 29 March 2020

Paws 4 Pilgrims cancelled following Government guidance

The ongoing health crisis is at the forefront of many of our minds and, here at Pilgrims Hospices, we’ve been monitoring the guidance from authorities to inform how best we can do our part to protect our patients, staff, volunteers and, of course, the wider community that we serve.

Following the announcement made by government (16th March), advising the population to avoid all non-essential travel and contact, we have made the decision to cancel our upcoming Paws 4 Pilgrims event that was scheduled to take place in Deal on Sunday 29th March 2020.

To discuss your entry fee and any sponsorship raised please contact Thank you for your understanding.

This spring, join hundreds of dog walkers as you embark on our popular 5km sponsored dog walk along the beautiful Deal coastline towards Walmer before returning. After the walk, why not enter your furry friend in some of the classes in our fun dog show; with ‘fastest sausage catcher’ and ‘dog most like its owner’ being popular choices. With refreshments and stalls to enjoy too, it’s a great day out for the whole family. Paws for thought and raise funds for Pilgrims!
