Fundraising walk raises cash for Medical Detection Dogs charity

Jane Grant, Ian Grant, Ralph, Chris Cole, Lindsey Cole, Pippa, were part of a group of 150 who took part in the walk.

A day-long fundraiser was held in order to raise money for the Medical Detection Dogs charity.

Organised by Jan Marsh, about 150 people took part in a walk around Bloom Wood on Sunday and enjoyed a lunch at Jan’s home in Woodland House, Lower Winchbottom, afterwards.

“It was a really good day, I have no idea how much was raised, I know it won’t be in the hundreds of thousands but I will say it is going to be substantial,” Jan’s husband, Richard Marsh, said.

“We had one person bid £500 for an item in the silent auction.”

Aside from the auction there was also a raffle with all the proceeds going towards the charity which trains dogs to detect the odour of disease.

“Jan chose the charity because she knows people who have benefited from the dogs and wanted to do something to help,” Richard added.
