There were tails a wagging in Altrincham Market on Sunday the 21st of May when the first ever Mooch with ya Pooch took place. Local market stall owner Rob Benson along with colleagues organised the sponsored walk to raise money for CAFT and what a successful day it was.

Local walkers chose from three routes all of which started at John Leigh Park and finished at Altrincham Market. In the market the fun continued with a dog show judged by Sally Dynevor, Sheree Murphy, Stacey Forsey and Dave. Categories in the show included:

A big thanks to Chelsee Norris and Phil Trow from BBC Radio Manchester who did an amazing job hosting the day’s events. Thank you to our judges and to Andrew Collier Photography for capturing the day and of course a great big thanks to our event organisers, all your help and support. Finally, a huge thank you to everyone who attended, it was a brilliant day filled with beautiful, well-behaved dogs and generous owners. The day was pawsitively pawsome and we raised a great deal for the terminally – ill, disabled and disadvantaged children. We hope to see you and your pooch for a mooch again next year.
