(Credit to Mo Sowerby who posted this useful list on the facebook group - https://www.facebook.com/groups/2117963 ... 532928402/ )

Sharing here as I've been contacted by someone searching for this info and not everyone's on facebook.

Complete list of CHARITY WALKS FOR SALE - march meet 2017
Please note that these walks are out during the peak time for ground nesting birds so please take care when looking for boxes not to disturb them and if at all possible refrain from doing these walks until after 14/07/17. If you see a nest or a distressed bird please move away at once. ALL dogs should be on leads and under close control. If the walk is in any army ranges then please check to be sure that you are able to access the range on your chosen day.
