Paint The Town Red

12th – 19th February 2022

Thank you for your interest in supporting Medical Detection Dogs and helping us Paint the Town Red this February.

Download your free Paint The Town Red fundraising pack which contains everything you need to get started and use the colour of love to support our work. You will find the inspiration you need to get your event started, for example invitations, posters and even price labels for those delicious cakes. There is also a short quiz, to keep you occupied over your lunch break, do you know your Scooby Doo’s from your Snoopy’s?  Whether your event is large or small this pack should contain everything you need to really Paint the Town Red.

After all the fun has finished, we have even included a handy, paying in form, so you can send the all-important pennies (and £’s) to us.

By joining in, you will not only be showing us some love, you will also be raising funds and awareness of the work of our amazing Medical Alert Assistance Dogs. Our dogs save the lives each and every day of people with life changing conditions such as Type 1 Diabetes, PoTS, Addison’s disease and severe allergies. Their colleagues, our Bio Detection Dogs are working towards a much earlier diagnosis of multiple cancers and diseases such as Parkinson’s.

As a charity we receive no government funds and rely solely upon the generosity and good will of people like you. Every pound you raise will make a huge difference and enable us to continue using the power of our dogs’ noses to detect disease and save lives.
