Two-legged walkers will line up alongside their four-legged friends for the annual Wags and Wellies Walk tomorrow.

The event is a three-and-a-half mile dog walk through the rolling fields around Gretton.

It is suitable for people of all fitness levels and pet dogs are very much welcome.

The sponsored walk aims to raise money for the Lakelands Hospice in Corby, which is a day hospice for people with cancer and other life-limiting illnesses.

It offers care to people from Corby and north Northamptonshire.

Lakelands community fundraiser Nikki Hill said: “Although the event is aimed at dogs and their owners, the route is scenic enough to satisfy everyone, and we really would encourage people to come along, take part and support their local hospice.”

The walk starts at 11am and registration opens at 10.30am at the Bluebell Inn in Gretton.

The walking route is not suitable for wheelchairs and pushchairs.

The entry fee is £3 for adults and £2 for children, and this includes a soup and roll back at The Bluebell Inn at the end of the walk.

Four-legged friends can take part for free.
