There’s no time to paws. Make sure you sign up for a charity day with a difference.
A fourth annual dogs day out is planned at the Summerhill Country Park on Saturday, June 29.
The Hartlepool & District Hospice event, sponsored by Pets at Home, includes a sponsored dog walk around a 1.5 mile circuit, and a host of other activities including a dog show.
Entry is £5 per dog. People are admitted free of charge if they are accompanied by a dog.
The hospice, based in Wells Avenue, offers specialist palliative care to hundreds of adults from Hartlepool and East Durham each year.
