can we tempt you to a stroll in the park?

click to go to the Hearing Dogs for Deaf People websiteThe Cambridge Branch of Hearing Dogs for Deaf People is organising a sponsored stroll in Milton Country Park on Sunday 10 October from 10.00 am until approximately 3.00 pm.

We'd like to encourage people from Cambridge and the surrounding villages to come along with their dogs and families and enjoy a walk, whilst raising much-needed funds for this very worthwhile cause. We will present medals to those who complete the course and there will be a treat for dogs at the finish point.

There is an excellent café where, after your walk, you can sit back and enjoy some refreshments or alternatively stock up at the café before you start so that you can enjoy a picnic en route. There are plenty of seats along the way so that you can stop and enjoy the scenery and all that the park has to offer.

Despite the proximity to the A14 there is a very tranquil atmosphere and the site is very child- and dog-friendly. The two routes - of 2 miles and approximately 5 miles - will be well marked, and maps will be available. The majority of the route is very amenable to wheelchairs and pushchairs, and is generally flat. Dogs and accompanied children will be very welcome.

Cost per participant is just £2.00 but we hope that many walkers will obtain sponsorship to increase the amount raised for the charity. We'd love this to be an annual event, so please do come and support us!
