Pooches and their powerful companions were out in force on Sunday for Garden House Hospice’s very first Muddy Mutts and Superheroes walk.
More than 50 dogs and their owners braved the chill at Norton Common for a walk accompanied by The Hulk, Spiderman, a Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle and a Minion – courtesy of Abacus Events Stevenage.
North Herts Bowls Club supported the event by allowing the hospice to use the club’s facilities to serve teas and coffee after the walk.
North Herts District Council’s environmental crime officer Jane Bethell-Lombari was on hand to answer any queries and PC David Pert and Britain’s – now retired – longest serving police dog, Brewster, also made an appearance.
Money raised from the event – which is still being totted up by the team – goes towards the running costs of the hospice, which cares for people in North Herts and Stevenage with terminal illnesses.
