More than 100 dogs and their owners took a stroll through Stevenage’s Fairlands Valley Park on Sunday to raise money for the Essex and Herts Air Ambulance.
The third annual Heli Hounds 5km walk was led by the finalists of a competition to determine who would be crowned the charity’s 2018 poster dog.
The overall winner, who took the title Heli Hound Hero, was husky Tikaani, who celebrated his birthday on Sunday and who has attended four Heli Hounds walks over the past few years.
Jen Wall, volunteer and events manager, said: “It was a lovely day for an autumn dog walk. Seeing so many dogs in one place and walking for the charity was a wonderful experience. A lot of dog owners were making friends and everyone was in high spirits, despite the lack of sunshine. Thank you to everyone who attended.”
Money raised from the event is still being counted and will go towards keeping the charity operational.
