The autumn sun came out for 101 dogs and their owners as they set out on the PetSavers charity walk at The Bathurst Estate in Gloucestershire.

The keen canines were joined by more than 300 owners, The Countess of Bathurst, and local BBC broadcaster Mark Cummings on October 26.

The en-masse dog walk raised more than £1,000 to help support vital research into cures for the diseases that cause pets suffering.

The event, organised by Gloucester charity PetSavers, saw pets and owners complete their three-mile or six-mile walk, and the canine companions were greeted at the finishing line with a medal and a PetSavers goodie bag.

Mr Cummings said: “It was a great day with a superb turnout. Tyler my rescue lurcher made lots of new friends. I’m sure this event will grow every year and become a fun annual family day out.”

Lady Bathurst said: “Dora and I couldn’t have enjoyed sharing our beautiful park more with so many other dog lovers.

“The Bathurst family have welcomed walkers, riders and dogs into these stunning grounds free for more than 320 years, and so it was a joy to see such a show of support for this exceptional charity.”

Event organiser Emma Sansom said: “It was fantastic so many two-legged and four-legged friends took part for our inaugural Bathurst walk, and thank all those who attended for their support.”
