There were larks and barks at the latest Whitchurch charity event as plenty of four-legged and two legged folk headed to the town's High Street to raise money for Cancer Research UK.

The walk, is is fast becoming a regular feature in the town, saw around 50 dogs arrive at the Black Bear, at the top of Whitchurch High Street, at around 11am on Bank Holiday Monday, with most arriving with owners but some also available for hire for those who wanted to get involved.

Rachel Farm organised the day, which included a raffle stall and free refreshments for the good boys and girls who padded around the up to six-mile course, and she was delighted with how the day went.

"We had a fabulous day yesterday," said Rachel.

"I think we had 50 dogs turn up and when we cashed up, we have made more than £470 which is fantastic."

Dogs of all breeds were ons how at the Bark For Life walk, including two popular sausage dogs, Alfie and Willis, with owner Karen Platt, making their second appearance in The Herald in a month, while many youngsters enjoyed the day.
