Llama joins Norfolk charity dog walk

A llama was the surprise guest participant in a charity dog walk in aid of our armed forces.

The New Year's Day Sponsored Dog Walk at Fressingfield marked the 16th anniversary of the village event and was held in aid of Help for Heroes.

Leading the way though was a very special guest in the form of Clarence the Llama, who is resident in Fressingfield. The five-mile route regularly attracts characters of all shapes and sizes, from a horse and cart to pony and trap and even a donkey.

Over the past 16 years the dog walk has raised more than �50,000 for charity and organiser Carol Wyatt said: 'Our loyal band of regular supporters tell us this is the only way to spend New Year's Day and a number of long standing friendships have developed as a result.'

She added: ''This time we have chosen to support Help for Heroes because nearly all the funds raised are used to provide facilities and support services for British servicemen and women who have been injured in the service of our country.'
