Derry charity, HURT - Have Your Tomorrows- is hosting an event called Paws for Thought to help raise much needed funds.

HURT is a unique drop-in centre in Derry offering holistic approaches to addiction recovery and family support.

"We are calling all Dog lovers to sign up to do a 5k walk starting from Destined Foyle Road and walking out the line with their fur babies."

It is £20 to Register for the event and you can do so online at www.hurtni.org.  

Your registration fee includes a Paws for Thought T-shirt, Doggie bandana and other treats including a money off voucher for a Human Breakfast and Puppaccino before you set off at sponsors, Brick and Feather Cafe.

On the day there will also be free dog chipping, a doggie photo booth and spot prizes for best dressed pooches.
