A Suffolk charity event will celebrate its 15th anniversary on New Year's Day with the help of Clarence the llama.
The annual sponsored dog walk at Fressingfield has raised nearly £43,300 for Macmillan Cancer Support so far. And organiser Carol Wyatt now has her eyes set on reaching £50,000.
“Charities like Macmillan need support more than ever in difficult economic times so please support us now,” she said.
She and husband Steve began holding the event when they moved to the village from Essex and
their house guests wanted something to do on New Year's Day.
The five-mile circular route is suitable for all ages, with or without dogs.

Previous events have seen horse riders, a horse and cart, pony and trap and a donkey accompanying the walkers, and now Fressingfield's resident llama Clarence will be joining in.
The walk starts and finishes at Fressingfield Sports and Social Club where free hot soup and bread are served to all who take part, and begins at 10.30am.
