West Country Bullie Walks – Bullie Bash Woolacombe 14th May 2016
A great weekend was had by all who attended West Country Bullie Walks annual camp ‘The Bullie Bash’ at Easewell Farm. Around 160 Bull Terriers from as far away as Scotland met to promote the breed and raise much needed funds. On the Saturday morning all the dogs met for a mass beach walk and in the afternoon we held our fair. Stalls included Buzzin Bullie, Raffle, BBQ, Coconut shy, Pimms tent, agility, face painting and an auction. An amazing total of £3153.32. this will be used to pay the medical bills of Bull Terriers in rescues.
70 families are already booked in for Bullie Bash 6 next May
Started in 2012 by people who owned Bull Terriers & wanted to promote this wonderful breed and to be able to share walks and help other Bull Terrier owners. it has now grown with over 500 members throughout the West Country.
WCBW is a registered Charity and fundraise through organised walks, raffles, auctions and other events. All the money raised is used towards the medical bills of Bull Terriers in UK rescues.
Members of WCBW support BT rescues by assessing BT’s that need new homes, providing homechecks for new owners and transporting BT to their foster or forever home.

The biggest event we organise is the Bullie Bash. This year will be our 5th. The 1st one in 2012 was attended by 8 families and the event has gone from strength to strength. Bullie Bash 4 was attended by over 50 families and 105 Bull Terriers. Probably the biggest gathering of Bullies in the country. People travelled from London, Suffolk, Wales, Liverpool, Sheffield and of course the West Country.
Plans for Bullie Bash 5 are well under way. It will be held again at Easewell Farm Campsite Woolacombe. The main event is on Saturday the 14th May with a mass walk on Woolacombe beach at 10.30am and at 2.30pm at Easewell Farm we will be holding our fun afternoon with BBQ, refreshments, fun agility, fancy dress, face painting, tombola, raffles and lots of other stalls. The afternoon is open to the public to raise funds and to also promote our misunderstood breed.
