Dog owners are being invited to take their pets for a walk in picturesque Shipley Country Park — and raise money for the Guide Dogs charity.

The Derbyshire branch of the charity is holding ‘Go Walkies’ at the venue on Sunday (September 15).

There will also be a chance to win six months’ supply of high-quality dog food.

Matt Freeman from the charity said: “I always love our Go Walkies events – they bring the local community of dog owners together in beautiful surroundings.”

Registration for Go Walkies is free, and can be done either on the day or by contacting Jo Berry on 08453 727 424, or emailing jo.berry@guidedogs.org.uk.
