DOG owners are being invited to take the lead in a charity walk with a difference and help raise hundreds of pounds for Brian House Children’s Hospice.

The palliative care unit’s annual Bark in the Park is back for a third year.

And the 5km walk is a fundraiser with a difference as it is dogs that are sponsored, rather than their owners,

This year organisers are hoping entrants will enter into the spirit of things by donning superhero fancy dress as part of the Bispham hospice’s involvement with National Children’s Hospice Week, which has a superheroes theme.

Collette Goodwin, events fundraiser for Brian House, said: “We want to see as many canines and their humans as possible for what is a really fun event. Bark in the Park is a fantastic way for the community to support our work and over the last two years it has raised £12,000.”

The event takes place at Lawson’s Showground, on Lawson Road, at 11am on April 20. Registration is £6 per dog. For more information, go to www.trinityhospice.co.uk.
