DOG owners are being encouraged to enjoy a stroll with their four-legged friend while raising money for Mary Stevens Hospice.

Supporters and their pooches will set off on the sponsored walk at 10am on Sunday September 28 and cover a 5km route around Clent Hills.

The event has been organised by Sue Williams, a keen supporter of the Oldswinford hospice, which costs around £2.5 million a year to run.

Charlotte Schofield, the hospice's lottery and special events manager. said: “It is always a fantastic event and a wonderful way to bring the local community together.”
