BEST PAW FORWARD: Participants in the Woofs and Walkies event

DOG owners stepped up the funds of Ashgate Hospice by more than £7,000 when they took part in a sponsored walk.

The 4.5-mile Woofs and Wellies walk around Linacre Woods, Chesterfield, was enjoyed by over 120 dogs and handlers.

Ashgate Hospice fundraiser Alison Ward-Foster said: “Thank you to everyone who took part, it was a great event. We hope to see all our four-legged friends again on Sunday, March 18, 2013.”
