The event saw people of all ages and more than 70 dogs, run, jog or walk 1.2km to support the local charity.

More than £12,000 has been raised so far, which will support the Hospice to provide compassionate, specialist end-of-life care to people in Milton Keynes and the surrounding areas.

Sarah Sweet-Rowley, events manager at Willen Hospice, said: “What an amazing morning, this event really puts the fun in fundraising! Thank you to everyone who took part.

“There was a brilliant atmosphere down at the lake and most importantly, those who took part have helped us raise a fantastic amount to support their local Hospice.”
