Dogs big and small bounded around a park yesterday for a good cause.

Havering Mind welcomed pooch lovers to Hornchurch for its annual Bark in the Park day, with youngsters and adults enjoying a long walk in the sun with their pets, from French bulldogs and shih tzus to alsatians and border collies.

The event, at Harrow Lodge Park, also included dog product stalls for visitors to peruse, and refreshments and advice from a vet were also on offer.

Ciaran White, Havering Mind’s events coordinator, told the Recorder: “Our fourth annual Bark in the Park dog walk was again a great success, with 250 dogs attending in the glorious April sunshine, along with hundreds more of their ‘human companions’.

“I am pleased to say the event raised a vital £2,000 for Havering Mind.

“Special thanks must be given to our volunteer Pia Van Praagh for all her hard work in organising the event. Havering Mind’s next dog-related event is the Paws in the Park dog show which takes place on Sunday, July 30 in Harrow Lodge Park.”
