Willen Hospice launches new GPS tracked dog walk game

Willen Hospice has invited all families to bring their dog along to The Great Willen Woof, which will be a live GPS tracked dog walk game.

The new event for 2019 will see Willen Hospice partner with The Parks Trust and WildGoose to create a game played by using a bespoke app on a smart phone or tablet.

Players and their pooches form a team, then use the app to navigate around the Willen area, starting from the Willen Hospice Gardens. As teams follow the interactive route, the GPS automatically unlocks family and dog friendly challenges to earn points.

What’s even better is that The Great Willen Woof takes place during the February half term, making for an affordable afternoon out. Families can choose to play on either Friday 22 or Sunday 24 February and costs just £20 per app download (one per team). Sponsorship is welcomed to raise funds for the Hospice.

Head of Events and Community Fundraising, Sarah Sweet-Rowley says, “It’s very exciting to be trying something new and different for 2019. The Great Willen Woof embraces technology, offering a unique family afternoon out while raising vital funds for Willen Hospice.”
