Musician and environmental campaigner, Sir Paul McCartney has released a new picture of him “Posing with his Nose” in aid of Wetnose Day – along with much loved actor and dog lover Tom Hardy. 

Wetnose Day will be taking place across the UK on September 29th – October 1st 2017 to help promote the issue of animal welfare and to raise much needed funds to cover essential food and medical treatments for animals in desperate need in the UK.

Wetnose Day aims to encourage schools, workplaces, vets, groomers, dog clubs, in fact everyone to pose with their nose and raise over £100,000 for dedicated rescue centres nationwide and the animals they care for.

Wetnose Day was established in 2000 by founders Andrea and Gavin Gamby-Boulger.  Andrea said,

“I was delighted to hear Sir Paul McCartney wanted to support Wetnose Day and pose with his nose!

Over the last few years Wetnose has been delighted to have fabulous endorsements and support from leading celebrity and animal campaigners including Paul O’Grady, Amanda Holden, Brian May and many, many more.

Frontline Plus, the flea and tick treatment providers and main sponsors of Wetnose Day stated “Animal welfare is at the core of our business, so we are delighted to endorse, alongside Sir Paul McCartney, Wetnose Day. The UK has hundreds, if not thousands of hard working volunteer rescue centres, and it’s essential their work is supported to ensure animals are cared for in the manner they deserve, namely with respect, love and compassion.”

Nathan Flatman from Animed Direct, the UK’s leading online animal pharmacy, stated “We are delighted to be supporting Andrea and her team in promoting Wetnose Day, raising the issues of animal welfare awareness and pet ownership. As pet owners ourselves, who serve thousands of pet customers every day, this campaign is essential and we urge everyone to pose with their nose!”

About Karin Ridgers

Well, I still have the recordings somewhere from when I was about 5 of me interviewing my sister who was about 3. I wouldn’t let her get a word in really and I really believed I was making radio programmes. When I was a teenager I used to love listening to Annie Nightingale and Janice Long who played such cool music. The chart show was on a Sunday evening and this was followed by Essex Radio playing their late-night problems show and I used to try to keep awake and secretly listening to problems that didn’t really even make sense to me. But it was exciting to hear! For many years I enjoyed being one of Sadie Nine's Loud Women on BBC Essex, so I had my radio fix without the stress of planning the show and operating the desk. I love Sadie and learnt a lot. She is a brilliant natural presenter who makes it all looks easy! I'm back on Phoenix FM which is quite surreal at times as I was one of the founder members when the station launched in 1996. As a huge 80s fan I am playing some of the same music too! I feel more confident with myself as most people do from their 20s to their 40s, so my show is different now to then. I have some incredible friends, clients, celebrities and experts who have come onto my show, including Rozalla, Baby D and Phil Fearon, Vicki Michelle, Wendy Turner Webster, Rick Hay and many more. I am so excited as I get to chat to these wonderful guests and they have the opportunity to tell their story too.
