DOGS and owners raised thousands of pounds for a live-saving charity.
More than 100 dogs and their owners tackled a muddy three-mile route through the Marks Hall Estate, starting and finishing at the Essex and Herts Air Ambulance HQ on Earls Colne Business Park.
Jen Wall, volunteer and events lead, said: “We are really grateful to all the dogs and their owners who came out to support Essex and Herts Air Ambulance, despite the blustery conditions. So far the event has raised more than £2,600.
“Once we have received everyone’s sponsorship money, this figure could double, which would be amazing.”
Unfortunately, due to poor weather conditions, the dog show had to be cancelled, but Miss Wall said it didn’t dampen spirits.
Miss Wall added: “Everyone has been very understanding.
“We’ve had some really positive feedback about the walk, which was enjoyed by all who took part.”
Anyone who would like to receive a refund for the dog show should contact [email protected] or call the events team on 0345 2417 690 during office hours with their order name and number of tickets purchased.
Dog owners who would like to support Essex and Herts Air Ambulance can sign up for the charity’s next Heli Hounds event at Hatfield House in Hertfordshire on Sunday, June 9.
