Fundraising dog show to be held in Stourport
8:30am Sunday 10th March 2013 in Local
A TWENTY-year-old student is organising a dog show in Stourport to help her raise enough funds to visit a Scout event in Canada.
Jess Sullivan, of Kidderminster, is hosting the unusual fundraising event at Summer Way Farm, in Wilden Top Road, on Sunday, March 24.
The fundraising dog show includes categories such as best pedigree and non-pedigree, best sport and non-sport, most waggiest tale, best easter bonnet, best six legs which is for dogs that look most like their owner, best puppy, child’s best friend for handlers under 16, man’s best friend for handler’s over 16, best rescue and best veteran for dogs aged 7 or over.
It costs £1 per dog per category to enter and dog owners can book in to the event from 1pm with the judging beginning at 2pm.
Prizes and rosettes will be available for the best in category and certificates will be given for second and third places.
Miss Sullivan is a student, works part-time as a dog groomer and is a cub leader for Scouts in Kidderminster.
She hopes to raise enough money to attend the 14th World Scout Moot in Canada.
The moot is aimed at the young adults in scouting aged 18 to 25 and is open to scouts from around the world.
It is estimated that 5,000 representatives from more than 50 countries will attend.
The key principals of the event are international relations, building bridges between cultures and developing communication skills across the language barrier.
