Local dog lovers joined a national walking event to raise money and awareness for a greyhound charity.

There were 93 sighthounds who came together with their owners at Ferry Meadows Country Park in Peterborough as part of the nationwide annual event, the Great British Greyhound Walk.

The walk was organised on behalf of Kama’s Cave Greyhound Sanctuary which is the East Anglia branch of the Retired Greyhound Trust, based at Holbeach Drove.

Walk organiser Lorraine Bullman said: “A fund raising stall with raffle, tombola and goods for sale raised a wonderful £407.

“We would like to thank everyone who came along to support us and join in with our walk.
