Over 160 walkers and their dogs have raised an estimated £4,000 for a west Essex hospice.
St Clare Hospice in Hastingwood, near Harlow, hosted a not-so-wintry Winter Walkies on Sunday, May 23.
The money raised from the five-kilometre walk will go towards providing free care for those living with terminal or life-limiting illnesses along the Herts and Essex border.
Dani De’ath, St Clare's events and challenges fundraiser, said: "We’d like to say a huge thank you to everyone and their furry friends who came along and helped to generate thousands of pounds for our hospice care."
St Clare's said it costs £5 million each year to run the hospice.
Dani added: "It was a wonderful opportunity to come together, safely, with friends after such a long time apart, and to enjoy a country walk with hundreds of gorgeous pups!"
Winter Walkies was rescheduled to May due to Covid-19 restrictions.
