Rachel’s Day: Rhiwbina friends and family arrange charity dog walk

Friends and family of Rachel Day have arranged a charity dog walk in Rhiwbina to commemorate and celebrate the life of the 29 year old.

Rachel died after contracting a deadly form of sepsis two months ago. Rachel’s family said that she was in perfect health but quickly became very ill.

Work colleagues Catherine Clarke and Sally Kirkpatrick suggested a fundraising day to Rachel’s family. As a result, Rachel’s Day is set to take place at Rhiwbina Recreation Club on Saturday 19th August.

Catherine told Rhiwbina Living:

“Rachel sadly lost her life to sepsis in June this year. As can be imagined, it was an utter shock for her family and friends as she was, and still is loved by many. Rachel worked as a dog walker for Friends for Pets Cardiff and the team decided what could be more fitting then to organise a charity dog walk in her memory and to raise money and awareness for the Sepsis Trust UK. So with the help of Jayne, Friends for Pets Cardiff, Mark and Sally, we are asking people to come along and make this a day to remember!”

There will be a dog walk around the local Caedelyn Park, children’s activities, music and street food to raise money for the UK Sepsis Trust. Registration fee £6 per family with dog, or on day registration £8 per family with dog.

Please email Catherine at cardiff@friendsforpets.co.uk for more details

On day registration 12pm-12.45pm.
