Macmillan Fun Day helps people living with cancer

Hat designer to the stars, Philip Treacy, accompanied by Mr Pig will be one of the celebrity judges of the dog classes at the first ever Macmillan Dog Day on 9th July 2002 helping raising money for people living with cancer. For tickets please call 020 7795 0055

Have a fun afternoon with your dog at the first ever Macmillan Dog Day in London on 9th July and help raise money for people living with cancer. Supported by the Kennel Club, Macmillan Dog Day takes place at Royal Hospital Chelsea, South Grounds, London SW3.

Macmillan Cancer Relief hopes to raise £30,000 from the event to help provide the expert care and practical and emotional support that make a real difference to people living with cancer.

Macmillan Dog Day is an afternoon of fun and entertainment for the whole family; dogs, their owners, parents and kids alike. Activities on the day include celebrity-hosted dog classes, arena shows by the famous Essex Dog Display Team, stalls and stands selling dog accessories and gifts, children’s entertainment including a dog gymkhana and a treasure trail walk.

And for those not too exhausted by the days activities, from 7 pm there is also an opportunity to join an evening party with drinks and canapes, live music and entertainment.


Special guest of honour, the Duke of Devonshire, opens the proceedings at 4pm. The Duke’s carpenters are the creators of the amazing luxury dog kennel which will be sold by silent auction at the event to raise money for the charity. The kennel is one of only two ever created and has been donated to the Macmillan Dog Day by supporter Sheila Parness. But even if you don’t quite have the bidding power, the ‘palace’will be on display at Dog Day for all to see.

Hat designer to the stars, Philip Treacy, will be joined by his canine companion Mr Pig to judge the best fancy dress class, one of the many competitions taking place on the day.

Other categories include best waggiest tail, dog and owner lookalike, veteran dog and best six legs for the best looking owner and dog couple.

One of the many other highlights of Macmillan Dog Day is your chance to speak with the best-selling author of ‘The Dog Listener’, Jan Fennell, aprofessional canine behaviourist. A supporter of Macmillan Cancer Relief, Jan is donating her time to the event to give dog lovers the opportunity to get free expert advice.

Tickets for this one day event start at £5 for evening party tickets. They are available from Jules Dixon, Macmillan London Special Events, call 020 7795 0055 or email
