Canines take the lead in Earlston fundraising exercise
More than 80 people and over 40 dogs (mostly rescues) turned out on for The BIG Borders Dog Walk in Earlston.
The sponsored event, organised by Borders Pet Rescue, was held to raise funds to create a secure exercise area for the canines.
The rain held off for the day and walkers enjoyed a six-mile circular trek on footpaths around the town.
Although the money is still coming in, organisers estimate that around £2,000 was raised by the event.
Centre manager Simon Cullum said: “It was fantastic to see so many supporters turn out with their dogs. Thanks also to our fabulous volunteers who turned out to marshal on the route and provide tea and cakes for the walkers. And, of course, to Earlston Paths Group for building and maintaining the wonderful network of footpaths.”
