Follow My Lead

St Elizabeth Hospice has launched a brand new dog walking event, Follow my Lead, and they’re looking for four-legged friends to sign up.

The walk, taking place on March 12th at Alton Water, will cost each dog £10 and they can bring their human friends for free.

Nigel Donkin, Community and Volunteer Fundraising Manager at St Elizabeth Hospice, said:

“We regularly have dogs popping into the hospice to see their owners so we thought it’s time we organised an event just for them!”

A competition was held to find the furry face of this new event, and more than 100 pet photos were submitted. The final choice was decided by a public poll of the top six, and the winner was Oakley (pictured), a two and a half year old cocker spaniel.

Oakley will start the walk at 10.30am on Sunday, March 12, followed by his canine companions, and dogs signed up will receive a doggy bag and Follow my Lead tag.
