Specsavers Ópticas is delighted to organise a brand-new charity dog walk to raise money for the Dogs Trust and SOS Animales.


The walk, on Saturday, 6 April, is a great way to exercise, meet fellow animal lovers and raise money for two excellent causes. The event sponsors, Dogs & Dogs and Specsavers, hope to raise around 500€, which will be divided equally between the two charities to fund a range of necessities including food, treats, dog beds, blankets, obedience training, vaccinations and vet check-ups.


‘We are looking forward to welcoming animal lovers to the store on the 6th of April for a lovely walk which will raise funds for two excellent causes. Please come along and get involved, everyone is welcome’. Martin Blake store director Specsavers Ópticas Santa Ponça


To register, walkers and their dogs should go to Specsavers Ópticas Santa Ponça, Avda Rei Jaume 1, 117, Locales 14 y 15 from 13.30 on Saturday, 6 April.


During the registration, the Calvia Lions Club will be offering a free diabetes and pre-diabetes test to all participants. This very quick test by qualified nurse Rina Quinn, is a great way to identify diabetes before developing symptoms, as early diagnosis allows patients to take control of the condition and manage it before complications occur.


Walkers will be setting off at intervals, from 13.30 to 14.30, on the 3km route and it will take between one and one-and-a half-hours to complete, with a break at the Parque Arqueológico - Puig de sa Morisca park. From there it will be down the hill back to Specsavers Ópticas in Santa Ponca for refreshments, a rest and a chance to find out more about the charities.  


Master Dreams will be there to produce beautiful pet portraits of your faithful friends for a donation to the charity.  


Everyone is welcome to join in with this fun and family friendly event for a donation of 5€ per person, with under 5s free. Those without dogs who would like to join the walk are also very welcome. Please register your interest for the event by signing up at the store, by calling 871 964 331, or emailing customer.santaponsa.es@specsavers.com
