Dog walk for deafness charity raises £500

On Saturday 20th May 2017, 60 guests and their four-legged friends enjoyed a 4.5 mile stroll taking in the beautiful countryside and river views between Newbourne and Waldringfield.

Guests then tucked into breakfast at the halfway point (The Maybush Inn), kindly donated by Steve Lomas at Deben Inns.

The event was organised by local hearing care specialists, The Hearing Care Centre and raised £500 for Hearing Dogs for Deaf People.

Hearing Care Centre Audiologist and Managing Director Karen Finch, who took part in the walk with her Cockapoo said, “What a lovely way to spend a Saturday morning! We are extremely thankful to the Deben Inns for their generous donation and for all our guests who came and took part. It was fabulous to have two Hearing Dogs with us as well – Elton & Quartzy and their deaf recipients, which just put the icing on the cake for us!”

The walk formed part of the Suffolk Walking Festival which continues until Sunday 4th June 2017. The festival is celebrating its 10th anniversary with over 100 walks organised across the county.

• There’s another dog walk as part of the festival The Lions Mutt Strut (organised by the Lions Club of Ipswich) on Sunday 4th June at Alton Water. (Includes Free Goodie Bag for all dogs taking part) BOOK or FIND OUT MORE HERE
