A FAMILY will be taking their dogs on a lifesaving walk as they step out for the charity that cared for a close relative.
Lynsey Everett, a nursery nurse from Sherburn Village, has recruited her family to take part in St Cuthbert’s Hospice Paws for a Cause dog walk at the weekend.
Lynsey, along with her parents, brother, aunties, uncles and cousins have signed up to the event which will see an army of dogs take part in the three-mile stroll through Houghall Woods.
They will be taking part in the walk in memory of Lynsey’s uncle who spent his final days at the hospice.
Lynsey, 25, will be taking part in the walk with her Jack Russell cross Jessie.
“Our family wanted to support the hospice and the fantastic work it does,” she said.
“The nursing staff were such a great comfort to all my family and we want to raise as much money as possible to ensure other families can access the fantastic services that we did.
“Our family is so keen to get involved in this event some of them have even borrowed dogs so that we don’t miss out.”
Paws for a Cause is an annual sponsored dog walk and will be held on Sunday in Houghall Woods near Shincliffe, Durham.
The three-mile stroll starts at 10am and dogs can enjoy agility courses and treats.
