Dog lovers are being invited to celebrate the new year and help a hospice charity by taking their pets out for a scenic walk around a Suffolk village.
The 23rd Fressingfield New Year's Day dog charity walk will be taking place in the village near Harleston from 10.30am in aid of East Anglia's Children's Hospices.
The five mile family friendly route starts and ends at the Fressingfield Swan pub.
The last 22 walks have raised more than £64,000 for good causes and last year's raised £2,700 for the hospice charity's nook appeal to build a £10m hospice south of Norwich.
Entry and sponsorship forms are available by calling organisers Steve and Carol Wyatt on 01379 586225.
