Irish Setter Rescue

Annual Walk & Garden Party
The East Midlands Social Region of the ISBC 1st May 2022

2022 feels like a very special year with the return of the sponsored walk organised by The East Midlands Social
Region of the ISBC in aid of IrishSetter Rescue & Rehome after an absence from our calendar for 2 years due to
COVID restrictions. This year it was held on Sunday 1st of May and once again, Gill & Andy Dale very
generously opened up their home ‘Treetops‘ in Matlock Derbyshire where this event has been hosted for
more years than I care to remember. It is a circular walk of about 4 1/2 miles through the beautiful Derbyshire
countryside, beginning and ending at Treetops. This event is always so well organised and this year was no exception.

Andy managed the setting up of chairs & tents in the garden and directed traffic to the car park with great efficiency
and Gill in the kitchen with her band of helpers organised the delicious afternoon tea. Walkers set off at 2pm and although
there were a few wrong turns everyone managed to negotiate their way back in good time for the afternoon tea which
together with the doggie treats was much appreciated. Although rain was forecast, the weather was kind and at one
point it felt as if the sun just might make an entrance. Perhaps that was just wishful thinking or maybe it was a reflection
of the general atmosphere in the garden with tails wagging and people catching up after not seeing each other for a few years.

The raffle was well supported and all in all £1231was raised for Irish Setter Rescue & Rehome. It was wonderful to
see so many old faces and some new and we look forward to seeing everyone back next year.

The date to note in your diary is 7th May 2023. Hope to see you there.

Update on the Spring Matlock Irish Setter Rescue Walk and Garden Party 2018

In May none of us would have dreamt of the fabulous Summer that was to follow the Spring Matlock Irish Setter Rescue Walk and Garden Party. Nor did we envisage that this iconic event would raise the amazing sum of £2290 for the ISRANDR. A serious amount of cash raised by good friends with passion to support the Irish Setter in want of a new home and family to love.

A Big Thank You to each and every dog and owner that supported the walk – it really could not have happened without you. Looking forward to seeing you good people 5th May 2019 at Tree Tops when Olivia O’Henson will be awarded the Clyde Cup for raising the most money for this years walk – a superb £230!  Congratulations Olivia.

Spring is such a glorious and hopeful time of the year, the luscious Irish Red Setter contrasts perfectly against the verdant green. Not sure who this beauty is but she paints a truly beautiful picture in the Tree Tops garden. Join us in 2019 to help all Irish Setters be this picture.

On behalf of the East Midland Social Region of the I.S.B.C

A Huge THANK YOU to everyone who joined us on Sunday for the Annual Matlock Walk & Garden Party. 
It was a glorious day and a fantastic turn out. Without you the supporters we wouldn’t be able to 
raise funds to aid our Beautiful Breed in their times of need. Thanks to your generosity our initial total 
was £1,482.50 on Sunday evening with some pledges for the walk still to be collected.

It just leaves me to say, see you all next year May 5th 2019 Same Place Same Time when we will do it all again.
