Those with both four legs and two invited to sign up to St Francis Hospice’s Ingatestone walk
Dogs and their owners are being invited by St Francis Hospice mascot Frankie the Lion to enjoy a walk and support the charity’s work.
The Havering-atte-Bower hospice’s Wags and Tails sponsored dog walk takes place at Ingatestone Hall, Ingatestone, near Brentwood, on Sunday September 16, and those with two legs can sign up now.
The money raised will help patients like former bus driver Les Newman, from Romford, and his wife Margaret.
They have been supported by St Francis Hospice for two years, since Les was diagnosed with renal cancer and needed care following an operation to remove a kidney.
Les, 67, is regularly visited at home by a hospice specialist nurse who talks to the couple, addresses their concerns and assesses if Les needs additional care or medication.

Margaret said: “It’s a great help having the hospice nurse visit to check on Les. I find it easy to talk to her and can ask her anything and she will help us.”
Places on the walk must be booked in advance and are �5 or �3 for under 10s.
