Fressingfield walk to boost Help for Heroes funds

Walkers will be putting on their marching boots to raise money for army charity Help for Heroes in the New Year.

Nearly 100 walkers have already registered to participate in the Fressingfield New Year sponsored dog walk on January 2, which will involve a five mile circular route.

Clarence, the local Llama, will be leading the way and the walk is suitable for all ages, with or without dogs.

As well as Clarence, the dogs and walkers, previous events have seen horse riders, a horse and cart, pony and trap, and a donkey.

The event starts at 10.30am, and finishes at the Fressingfield Swan Inn where free hot soup and bread are served to all who take part.

Organiser Carol Wyatt said: 'Our loyal band of regular supporters tell us that the New Year celebrations would not be the same without the Dog Walk and a number of long standing friendships have developed over the last 17 years as a result.'

The Dog Walk has raised over �55,000 for charity since it started and this year will be supporting Help for Heroes, which provides facilities and support services for injured British service personnel.
