To add to the fun on the day, there will be:

  • Face Painter for children (OK, for adults as well, if you must!) 
  • Prizes for ‘Best Behaved Dog’ (consolation prize for Worst Behaved Canine)
  • All waker raising £100 or more will be entered into a Prize Draw with some fine prizes to be won. 
  • There will also be a Special Prize for the individual raising the most money.
