Dog owners urged to join Winter Walkies for St Clare Hospice

DOG owners are being encouraged to get their wellies on for the Winter Walkies to raise money for St Clare Hospice.

Walkers – and their dogs – will set off from St Clare Hospice in Hastingwood at 10.30am for a 5km sponsored country walk on Sunday, January 27. Everybody is welcome to join in, with or without a dog.

Grace Clutton, the Hospice’s events fundraiser, said: “Why not bring your family for a New Year stroll? After the 5km walk round the local countryside there will be treats and even a medal for the pooches, and soup and rolls will be provided for the owners.”

There will be prizes for the best Dog - Owner Lookalike as well as Wackiest Wellies.

Entry costs �10 per adult (�5 per child or �27.50 per family - two adults, two children) which includes hot refreshments. Sign up as places are limited.

You can register online at or call 01279 773750 for a registration form.
