WELCOME TO SNOWDOGS DISCOVER ASHFORD 2018
12 September –
18 November

Inspired by the much-loved animated film The Snowman and The Snowdog, the sequel to Raymond Brigg’s classic picture book The Snowman, Ashford’s Snowdog trail celebrates the film’s themes of life, love, loss, friendship, companionship, strength and kindness.

A year in the planning, local businesses, artists and school children (all in on the secret) hope that you will now get involved by following the free trail, creating unforgettable memories for everyone along the way and helping to raise valuable funds and awareness for Pilgrims Hospices.

Our Snowdogs are fun, loyal, compassionate and offer love, unconditionally. This is your invitation to find your Snowdog and support the community you love in the process, too.

Ashford Snowdogs

We guess it is a day of love, and as we all know, love is not just Valentines Day - love comes in all different shapes and sizes. Through delivering Ashford Snowdogs, we recieved so much love from our community, and it seems it is the gift that keeps on giving.

Pilgrims Hospices are so in love today with the newest member of their family, Parklife.

Parklife has been generously gifted to Pilgrims in Ashford for the forthcoming year, to welcome and delight hospice visitors, patients and their families. Vin Donald-Trinh and his family were lucky enough to snap up two Snowdogs at the Gala Auction (Parklife and Topuppy) for his two young twins, but Vin wanted others to continue to enjoy the paweseome sculptures and so he has loaned Parklife to Pilgrims.

Parklife is perfect and fits in with the hospice wildlife orchard, sensory garden, pond and glorious settings. I'm sure you'll agree - he looks pawfect in his new Pilgrims home.
