Walk with Ralph

17 May 2021

Walk with Ralph is a Friendly Parks for All project, which is managed through Richmond Council's Parks Department and aims to encourage more use of parks and open spaces by local people especially those who face barriers to getting into the natural environment.

Ralph will be accompanied by his owner and local volunteer Jacqui Davidson. Both Jacqui and Ralph are registered with the charity Pets as Therapy who use trusted volunteers and their behaviourally assessed animals to enhance health and wellbeing of the community.

The aim of the monthly walk is to bring joy, comfort and companionship to individuals who appreciate being able to touch and stroke a friendly animal. This very gentle walk socially distanced walk is suitable for people with dementia and their carers.

The first walk of this year will take place on Friday 28 May at 10.15am. Following walks will take place on Friday 25 June and Friday 30 July 2021. To register your interest in attending, please contact parks@richmond.gov.uk or telephone 020 8891 1411.
