Festival Charity Dog Walk
Fetches £500 for Deafness Charity
Local hearing care specialists, The Hearing Care Centre raised £500 with the return of their special charity dog walk - helping raise funds for Hearing Dogs for Deaf People.
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.
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 is celebrating its 10th anniversary with over 100 walks organised across the county.
