Charity walk raises handsome sum for Animal Protection Society Albox

BREATHER: Walkers and dogs having a rest CREDIT: Liz Carey

The Animal Protection Society Albox charity walk raised over €500 for the charity.
The walkers and their dogs met at the Rosaleda Hotel in Arboleas and completed a five-kilometre circular walk on a scenic, but not overly taxing route led by David Ridyard. A water stop halfway provided a refreshing rest for everyone.
There were a huge variety of dogs, with some of the smallest having the biggest of personalities.
Event organiser Margaret Ridyard was delighted with the number of people who turned out to take part in the walk, despite the wind. She thanked all the volunteers who helped and all the participants, some of whom had raised large amounts through sponsorship.
Jack raised the most and walked proudly with his owner Maggie.
APSA also ran a raffle and thanked local businesses The Corner Shop, Harrisons and Total Entertainment for donating prizes.
