Mowgli’s dog show for Claire House returns

A dog show organised by Mowgli Steet Food is returning this summer to support Claire House Children’s Hospice.

Organisers of the Mowgli Dog Show are gearing up for this year’s show – and your pooch can be at the heart of it when the gates open on 1 and 2 June.

Tickets are now on sale for the two-day event, which raises vital funds for seriously and terminally ill children and their families.

Families can enjoy a weekend of fantastic food and drink and interesting craft stalls, as well as live music sessions on the Saturday evening.

The show, which takes place at Claremont Farm in Bebington, will also include 10 canine competitions and fun demonstrations. There will also be children’s activities, animal petting, a funfair, and inflatables to keep the little ones entertained – all to help Claire House.

The Mowgli show arena will be hosted by Adam Weighell from Heart Radio.

Founder Nisha Katona said the family-friendly dog show, which is now in its sixth year, enables Mowgli to give back to the community. Nisha said, “The Mowgli Dog Show is my favourite day of the year. I launched the dog show to bring my passions together: the work of the Claire House Children’s Hospice, good food and the joy that our pets bring to our daily life.

“If we can weave this all together – family, food, four-legged friends – then that’s the spirit of Mowgli in a nutshell, to enrich the lives of the cities we live in and Merseyside is my home turf.”

Every penny of profits from the event will go to Claire House.

Dan Halliday, Corporate Fundraising Manager at Claire House, said, “The Mowgli Dog Show is such a fantastic event for Claire House Children’s Hospice to be a part of.

“Not only does it raise an incredible amount of much-needed money year on year for our children and their families, but the awareness it generates within our community is incredible.

“Being able to get the Claire House name out to such a large audience has a huge ripple effect across the region.

“We can’t thank Nisha and the whole Mowgli family enough for the passion and energy it takes to make such a wonderful family event and for making a real difference to the lives of so many children who need us most.”
