Essex and Herts Air Ambulance are hosting an annual walk to raise vital money

Owners and their four-legged friends are invited to take part in the Heli Hounds walk on March 1.

The walk will start at Essex and Herts Air Ambulance Charity Office on Earls Colne Business Park for a three mile adventure through the picturesque grounds of the Marks Hall Estate.

Burnham and District Dog Training will also be on hand with dancing dog demonstrations and #how to' sessions.

Events Manager, Emily Donnachie said: "Our Heli Hounds walk is a really popular, fun event with hundreds of people and their dogs joining us each year.

"Because EHAAT is a charity, the money raised by events such as this is important in keeping our life-saving service operational.

A dog show with a selection of classes to enter will also take place during the walk.

"It would be great to see as many people as possible come along with their dogs.

"If 300 dog walkers each managed to get £30-£50 in sponsorship money, we could raise over £10,000, enough to fund four life-saving missions."

Entry to the dog show is £1.50 in advance or £2 on the day.
