A national dog charity is appealing to the people of Bolton to take part in their event later this month to raise funds that will help find rescue dogs new homes.

The event, a three and a half mile Treasure Hunt Walk, will take place on 22nd May. It has been organised by Bolton woman Jayne Hilton in aid of Finding Furever Homes, who work throughout the North West and UK.

Jayne first became a supporter when she met Andrea Newton, the founder of the charity during a community search for a missing dog in 2014. Since then, she has been doing her bit to help them raise much needed funds that are used to pay the accommodation, veterinary and food bills of dogs in rescue across the country.

Jayne said: “Since meeting Andrea I’ve followed the amazing work Finding Furever Homes do across the country to help dogs in rescue. Organising this treasure hunt is just me doing my bit to help a worthwhile cause.”

Participants in the Treasure Hunt, who must buy tickets in advance to take part, will meet at Turton Tower, in Bolton at 1pm. The walk should take a maximum of around three hours. Jayne and Finding Furever Homes recommend appropriate footwear and clothing is worn as although the majority of the route uses established paths; there may be some muddy areas.

Andrea, of Finding Furever Homes, said: “Fundraising events like this are not only a great day out, but a lifeline for our charity. We rely on public support, so every ticket sold for the Treasure Hunt can help make a difference.”

Tickets cost £5, with the full amount going to Finding Furever Homes. They are available from the Victorian Tea Rooms in Bolton, Dog Diplomacy in Adlington, via the Just Giving page (www.justgiving.com/FFH-TREASUREHUNT) and by emailing Finding Furever Homes at helpnwdogrescue@gmail.com.
