I WOULD like to invite Mail readers and their dogs to take part in a very worthwhile event.

“Woof in the Woods” is an opportunity for people to obtain sponsorship to help the Peterlee Mayor’s charity appeal. which includes the Hartlepool & District Hospice.

As well as supporting the hospice, the appeal also provides backing for Help for Heroes, The Back Up Trust and the Multiple Sclerosis Society, which carries out research into childhood MS, along with local youth groups.

To enter people need to obtain and complete a form.

The event will take place on Saturday March 21, beginning at 10am, assembling at the Dene Lodge, Stanhope Chase, Peterlee SR8 1NJ.

There will be two walks; the Squirrel Walk is about two miles long and involves some slopes. The other is level, and less than a mile.

“Choose which one suits you and your dog,” said Star columnist David Taylor-Gooby.

Completed forms should be returned to Peterlee Town Council, Shotton Hall, Peterlee or David Taylor-Gooby, 75, O’Neill Drive, Peterlee.
