Annual dog walking event Paws in the Park returns next month to raise funds for Pontefract’s Prince of Wales Hospice.

The sixth annual dog walk around Pontefract Park takes place on Sunday, August 11.

Last year more than 100 dogs and their owners took part, raising more than £4,000 for the hospice.

This year the event will be taking on Crufts, with prizes awarded for the dogs that turn heads.

Tom Belt, hospice fundraiser, said: “Paws in the Park is always a fun day for all the family, especially man’s best friend.”

The dog that helps to raise the most sponsorship money will feature on the event’s publicity in 2014.
