Many braved the weekend’s wintry weather to take part in a charity dog walk which has raised thousands for animal welfare.

Around 80 people pulled on their walking boots, brought pet dogs or were loaned one of the eager rescue pooches on Sunday, when they set out on a sponsored walk to help raise money for Keith’s Rescue Dogs.

“It was absolutely wonderful and despite the weather being awful, we managed to do really well,” said Pollyanne Trapmore-Shaw, a volunteer.

Over 100 dogs were taken on the five-mile route, starting at Natureland Seal Sanctuary in Skegness and finishing at Skegness Sands.

“It was brilliant that so many turned up as it was a really nice day, which has managed to raise enough money to help all the dogs for nearly a whole month,” added Pollyanne.

Money is still coming in but Pollyanne believes a staggering £7,000 and possibly more has been raised though the event, securing supplies for over 80 dogs at the charity.

A fundraising night will also be taking place tomorrow (Thursday) from 7pm at Bar Wicked in Chapel St Leonards to help raise money for the charity.

There will be entertainers, raffles with prizes, games and representatives with a couple of dogs there on the night. For more on the charity, visit www.keithsrescuedogs.org.
