We have received many generous donations recently, which NWESSR and its dogs are extremely grateful to receive.

We really do like to acknowledge each one to say a personal ‘Thank you’, so if at all possible, if you could include your email address when you send a donation, just so that we can do that… that would be perfect.

Thank you once again to everyone who has donated.


Monty Python completes Morecambe Bay Walk 2014

Hi folks,

A huge thank you to those kind people who sponsored me, I raised £100 for my fellow Springers.

I had a brilliant day starting with that 10 minute train journey, my kind mum lifts me on, as I don't like that gap between train and platform, but otherwise its great.

It was exciting running on the beach, as we neared the River Kent, mum could see I was going to do a runner to it. She reminded me of the etiquette (Cedric, gets in first) and I was promptly put on my lead. Grrrrr.


Not to worry, it was deep enough to swim across, and I love swimming more than walking, so result.

Back at the station I got a certificate and dog biscuits from Rachel. Then it was off to the pub in Arnside, they always say it’s me that insists on going but it isn't.

Love and licks

Monty aka Python x

Morecambe Bay Walk - 2014

E-mail Print PDF

The sun shone and it was warm, hooray......  What a great walk we had, 23 intrepid walkers and their assorted dogs, including Serge, a NWESSR dog who lives in France, made strides across the bay in aid of NWESSR. There were over 200 walkers in total, and we were in very safe hands, as one of the other charities taking part was Bay Rescue.

Our Guide Cedric Robinson, led us on a different route between his carefully planned out laurel branches. Our dogs were bounding around thoroughly enjoying the freedom of the sands, whilst walkers could drink in the beautiful scenery all around. We were even treated to a rainbow, but without any rain.

The River Kent was somewhere between knee and thigh deep depending how tall you were, it is great fun wading across en-masse. Most dogs swam, some got a lift from their owners. The walk this year required us to cross the river twice more, before emerging on to lovely springy grass, to lead us to the end of the walk at Kents Bank Station.

Our thanks go to Cedric Robinson for being our Guide, Eric Taylor for marshalling our NWESSR walkers, Rachel and Stephen Wannell and their dogs Billy and Cleo, who met us all at the end with a certificate. And of course, to all the people and their dogs who took part, and donated money to our charity, raising £183 on the day
