Last night PetsPyjamas joined a host of glamorous guests at Barry Karacostas’ charity event to raise money for Children’s Charity, Right To Play and The Mayhew Animal Hospital charity. The celebrity dog jogger, whose clients include our very own mascots Heidi and Rufus, were joined by Elle Macpherson and David Gandy, as well as Alpine ski racer Chemmy Alcott, English weightlifter Zoe Smith and hockey player Alexandra Dansonal, who were all supporting Barry in his forthcoming husky expedition across the arctic in aid of the charities.
On his Just Giving page Barry writes about his reasons behind his daring trek: ‘Every year I try to give something back and this year I have chosen a challenge which has a strong connection to my work with dogs, however in an environment totally alien to me. Learning to dogsled in subzero temperatures through forests and frozen lakes is no easy expedition for a Mediterranean snow novice like me!’
It was a fabulous evening with a lot of money raised for worthy causes and we were so pleased to have been able to donate a prize to the auction and be there to support Barry. We wish him all the luck with his trek across the arctic.
