Updated 5:38pm Thursday 24th April 2014 in News
DOG owners are being urged to step out to help a charity for retired racing greyhounds.
The trust, set up by the greyhound stadiumin Chester-le-Street, hopes it will be as successful as last year’s event.
After meeting at noon at the hotel, participants will go on a short walk in Beamish Woods.
The trust will have a gazebo and stalls in the grounds.
A trust spokesman said: “Our aim is to bring together people who have adopted greyhounds, or people who are thinking about adopting a greyhound, and greyhound lovers in general.
“We need to raise more awareness about retired greyhounds and encourage more public interaction with them.”
