Hundreds of pooches will descend on the grounds of a historic estate during a huge air ambulance fundraiser.

Registration is now open for Essex and Herts Air Ambulance's Heli Hounds Dog Walk, which kicks off from the charity's head office in Earls Colne on March 4.

Last year's event saw more than 300 dogs take part in the 5km walk, which traverses the grounds of Coggeshall's Marks Hall Estate, and raised more than £7,000 for the life-saving charity.

Daisy the spaniel was the lucky model selected as the poster girl for the walk this year.

Tickets for the walk cost £5 in advance, or £7.50 on the day.

To book your pup’s place visit or call 0345 2417690.

In the run-up to Christmas, the charity also want to see pictures of your four-legged friends looking extra festive as part of a competition.

To enter, visit Essex and Herts Air Ambulance on Facebook before December 14.
