We’re pleased to see that charity Wag & Co. is up and running again!
Wag & Co. is a visiting dogs charity in the North East of England providing social visits to older dog lovers facing isolation and loneliness. As the only visiting dogs charity working in homes, care and hospitals, Wag Teams provide much-needed company and conversation for many of the North East’s elderly.
After Wag visits were limited during the pandemic for safety reasons, the charity is now once again back up and running in a COVID-safe manner. Not only that, but with a recent new slew of dogs & owners signing up to the charity as volunteers, the charity now has nearly 400 dogs ready to carry out visits.
BW Medical have been proud sponsors of Wag & Co. since our founding through the “Corporate Friends of Wag” scheme and have continued to support the charity since. The charity’s mission is one that is close to our heart, which is why both Richard Blackett and Suzanne Tait from our team also serve on the Wag team as Trustee and Finance Director respectively.
We’re also proud to announce that we will be joining Wag & Co. for the annual Walk for Wag event this year!
Although the event was cancelled last year due to the pandemic, the annual 10k fundraiser walk at Kielder resumes this year on September 11th and we’re looking forward to taking part! The team from BW Medical will be taking part to help raise funds and show our support for the charity in what promises to be a fun day out in the fresh air of the North East!
