CSE and the Queen’s Baton Relay!!

Monday 16th June 2014, was a huge milestone for CSE.  Ali (Running Jasper) and Viv (Viv N Storm) were both baton bearers in the Queen’s Baton Relay, in the Midlothian area . They were nominated and selected for founding Cani-Sports Edinburgh, which has created a vibrant, enthusiastic and supportive community based around sport and dogs.

This honour belongs to everyone in the club, each and every member has achieved incredible things on a personal basis and has made the club the fun and friendly group that we all enjoy today.

Of course the day would not have been complete without Rogue Dog featuring.  He even made friends with Clyde; the friendly mascot (who remained in one piece!)

The day finished with 5,000 people flocking to Dalkeith Country Park to watch the baton arrive on stage.  The day, time and venue could not have been more perfect for CSE.

To top it off …. we even managed to get a quick photo with the one and only baton itself and all the CSE members present got to touch it.  An incredibly special moment!

Rogue dog’s fundraising has exceeded over £1000!!

A complete impromptu 55 mile run by Rogue and his hooman has raised in excess of £1000 down to the kindness and generosity of his fans and members of the public.  All the animals at Border’s Pet Rescue will benefit greatly 🙂
