Fields in Trust

Bark For Our Parks

1st May 2024 - 31st May 2024

Our local parks are at risk of being built on and lost forever. So, join us and take a four-legged stand to help protect our parks by taking part in Bark For Our Parks.

We are calling all dogs (and their human owners) to take on the challenge of walking 50km or 100km this May. 

Use your walk to raise money for Fields in Trust, the only UK charity fighting to make sure our local parks and green spaces are legally protected and there for our walkies forever.

Registration is now closed. Check out our round-up blog to read about the milestones reached and the impact the challenge has made.
