Paws for thought at sponsored dog walk

COUNTRYSIDE park workers are hoping money paws in for charity when they host a sponsored dog walk.

Summerhill Country Park, off Catcote Road, in Hartlepool, is hosting its second fundraising dog walk in aid of Hartlepool & District Hospice.

Organisers are now appealing for people to join in the canine fun and put their name down to take part in the trek through the scenic spot.

It begins at 9am this Saturday at the visitor centre and finishes at 2pm. Booking is essential.

For more details, to book your spot and for sponsor forms, contact the hospice on (01429) 855536.
