WESTON College student union is appealing for dog owners and pets to step out on a sponsored beach walk in aid of Guide Dogs for the Blind on Sunday, March 3rd.

Between 10am and 12.30pm dogs and owners can help raise funds for 'Go Walkies' part of the national guide dog charity and the College's chosen charity this year.

Student Liaison and Entitlement Officer Megan Champion said: "We'll be giving prizes for the best dressed owner and dog and a prize for the dog that looks most like its owner.

"All four-legged friends will receive a goody bag for participating and afterwards people can enjoy a warm drink at the dog-friendly Stones Cafe on Knightstone Island."

Everyone who registers is in with a chance to win six months of Eukanuba dog food and children's activity packs will be available to keep little walkers happy.

Registration takes place at Knightstone Island at 10am and 11am. Participants can either pick up sponsor forms before the event or pay £5 per dog on the day.
