Suffolk Dog Day 2018, our County’s premier canine extravaganza is launching its brand new website and hoping to make a massive paw print on social media this year with the Houndly Hashtag #LetSleepingDogsLie and it’s all in a good cause to help Suffolk charities.
With British summertime now in full swing plans are well underway for the friendliest and fluffiest of all Suffolk family events, Suffolk Dog Day 2018, at Helmingham Hall, on July 29th.
Suffolk Dog Day puts your four-legged friend firmly at the centre of the celebrations, but it’s also a day where over 150 volunteers come together and raise every penny for Suffolk charities and community groups, almost £500,000 in total over the past eleven years.
Hot on the hairy heels of last year’s Dog of The Decade, which saw over 5,000 people vote for their favourite top then Suffolk breeds, this year’s campaign is called #LetSleepingDogsLie
The point is a simple one, Suffolk Dog Day absolutely doesn’t let sleeping dogs lie when it comes to helping vulnerable people in Suffolk, but it’s awareness campaign this year is all about taking to social media and sharing your cutest pictures of your snoring schnauzer, your dosing dachshund, your resting Ridgeback – You get the picture, then post it up with the #LetaSleepingDogsLie
Head of Public Affairs at Suffolk Community Foundation Tim Holder says, “Every dog owner has a cute picture of their four-legged friend asleep and #LetSleepingDogsLie will get people sharing their furry favourites on their phones, tablets and computers. It costs nothing to post a picture up on Facebook. Instagram or Twitter but it will also raise awareness of the needs of vulnerable people here in Suffolk and help us celebrate a few heroes in the mix for all the great work they do. We hope #LetSleepingDogsLie will get both tails and tongues wagging and there are some great prizes to be won too.”
So enjoy a little dig through your photo libraries and share the cutest pictures on Twitter, Facebook and Instagram and make sure you include #LetSleepingDogsLie
