Sunday 10th May will see their first dog walking event - Walkies in the Wood. Starting at 2pm at the Millennium Oakwood, you're invited to walk your dog as well as complete s scavenger hunt! They will also be having a dog fancy dress competition so make sure your pooch is picture perfect! Following the walk, everyone is invited to go back to Rebecca House for an open day. Tours of Rebecca House will be available and there will be a selection of stalls with local dog products and services on display. Entry is £10 per family including tea, coffee, water and dog biscuits as well as a surprise gift for all the dogs.


From Monday 11th to Friday 15th there will be a stand in the Strand Shopping Centre displaying the work of both Rebecca House and their dedicated Young Person Support worker. Information stands will give details on who the Youth Support Worker helps and how to get in touch.


On Wednesday 13th May participants will be invited to take part in a Skip-a-thon. Everyone is welcome to take part and be sponsored to skip.
