We all know that moving and regular exercise are great ways to improve mental health, but did you know, spending time on walks with your dog can reduce depression and anxiety too?
Humans have an innate instinct to touch and feel and to experience a physical connection with others. Dogs also share this fixed pattern of behavior, allowing a physical bond between humans and animals.
In recognition of World Mental Health Day, Treatt will be hosting a Charity Dog Walk at Nowton Park to raise much-needed funds for Suffolk Mind, who work closely with the community to empower anyone experiencing a mental health problem, campaign to improve services, raise awareness and promote understanding of mental health.
We are asking for a suggested donation of £10. All doggy participants will receive a bandana in recognition of your kind donation!
No dog – no problem! This event is open to all employees of Treatt whether they have a dog or would just like to come along for the walk (please still register your interest so numbers can be monitored)
– Due to the number of dogs attending, please keep all dogs on a lead
– Dogs are not permitted in the pond due to the risk posed to the aquatic life
– Please ensure you pick up after your dog – No exceptions!
– Children and other family members are welcome!
We hope to see you there!
** Please ensure you include your name with your donation so you can receive your bandana! **
