Dogs and their owners are invited to join the charity for a 5km sponsored walk through the beautiful surroundings of Bute Park, followed by the opportunity to win a coveted rosette in the annual dog show and a chance to explore the treats, activities and items on offer in our Dog Festival event village.

This years’ event is being supported by headline sponsor Cardiff Veterinary Centre. 

In addition to this, We are pleased to share that the event is also being supported by sponsors, Gambit Corporate Finance and MKM Cardiff. Let’s meet them…

Gambit is a leading independent corporate finance advisory firm specialising in M&A, debt advisory, fundraising and consultancy. Established in 1992, it is the UK’s longest established independent corporate finance advisory firm, with offices in Cardiff and London. Office Manager and Executive Assistant, Louise Downey told us,

“Gambit is delighted to be a sponsor of the City Hospice’s, ‘Wag This Way’ Campaign. We’re hoping our contribution will make a difference to those the City Hospice gives advice and support to in Cardiff. We look forward to taking part in the 5km sponsored dog walk and festival at Bute Park, Cardiff on the 28 April 2024”.

MKM is the UK’s leading independent builder’s merchant, with branches across England, Scotland and Wales. Open to the trade and public, the business carries a wide range of building materials to keep projects on track and a new branch will be opening in Cardiff this year. Branch Directors Russell Lewis and Dan Love from MKM Cardiff said, 

“As a local independent builder’s merchant, MKM Cardiff are all about giving back to the community and trying to make a difference. Our new team of local experts are proud to be taking part in the Wag this Way event and to help raise vital funds for City Hospice.
