Over £2,000 raised for hair loss charity
Over 80 Hampshire pet owners joined a charity dog walk in Gosport last weekend and raised £2,310 to support people with medical hair loss.
The event, hosted by My New Hair, a charity set up to help to people suffering hair loss from cancer and alopecia, saw dogs big and small take part in a one-mile walk along Stokes Bay Beach promenade on Sunday, 29th September.
There was also a canine ‘sausage hunt’, finishing with a barbecue at The Old Lodge Hotel, Alverstoke.
The event was led by the charity’s founder, professional stylist Trevor Sorbie MBE, who lives in Gosport and offers a free wig customisation service to people undergoing chemotherapy.
Trevor said: “I was humbled by how many people joined myself, my wife Carole and our precious Lisbon for the charity dog walk. I can’t thank everyone enough who, despite the wet weather, took part, and our amazing event supporters.”
