Dog walkers and their canine companions were out in full force at Thetford Forest to raise money for an animal welfare charity. 

Families from across the region met at High Lodge on Saturday (September 25) morning for an event dubbed 'Woof in the Woods'.

The gathering was hosted by FutureYou Cambridge, a company which makes vitamins including a turmeric-based joint supplement for dogs called Curcupet-K9.

For every person attending the weekend's walk, FutureYou pledged to make a donation to Blue Cross in support of their work on arthritis in dogs.
