We had the pleasure of meeting John Lupton (and his gorgeous dogs Rio and Levi!) who organised a Charity Gundog Test in Capernwray at the end of May.
There were about 90 dogs with their handlers that took part, many of whom travelled from all ends of the country to enter. This event came about for two reasons. One is that they love running their dogs and the other is St John’s Hospice. In John’s words;
“The staff and volunteers at St John’s hospice nursed and cared for my Dad up to the end with such excellent care and compassion. My thanks also go to the Hospice at Home and Macmillan nurses for their care and support to families in the local community.”
Through the weekend they donated any profits, held a raffle and an auction. Overall a fantastic £3,755.26 was raised! Well done and thank you to all who helped to facilitate this event.
