Llama Clarence joins Fressingfield charity walk

Wounded soldiers are expected to benefit from thousands of pounds of sponsorship after a dog walk attracted more people than in previous years.

An estimated 150 people took part in the charity event in Fressingfield, Suffolk, yesterday, including the village's resident llama, Clarence.

The five-mile walk began at 10.30am and finished at the Fressingfield Swan Inn, where hot soup and bread was served to those taking part.

Co-organiser Steve Wyatt said: 'We are delighted. Normally we get around 100 and this time we got around 150.

'We must be doing something right after 18 years.'

Money raised from the event will be donated to Help for Heroes. This is the second year the dog walk has collected cash for the cause, with �2,660 raised 12 months ago.

Mr Wyatt said: 'It's looking promising.'
