Sign up for sponsored walks with your dogs

Dog owners are being encouraged to take part in a sponsored walk along with their four-legged friends for charity.

The ‘Paws for a Walk’ Chalkland Challenge is set in the varied and tranquil countryside of the mid-Yorkshire Wolds, passing through the villages of Great Givendale, Bishop Wilton, and Millington.

You have a choice of a 20 mile, 10 mile, or a three mile walk, all starting and finishing at Pocklington Scout Hut. The walks all take place on 17 May and are in aid of Hearing Dogs for Deaf People. Closing dates for entries is 13 May. For more information or to register to take part in the Chalkland Challenge call Lucy Ward on 01759 322255 or email
