THE Laois Society for the prevention of Cruelty to Aminals (LSPCA) LSPCA are holding a sponsored dog walk this Sunday June 24 at 3.30pm at Garryhinch woods.

This walk has been an annual event for seven years now but this is the first year organisers are running the event as a family fun day. For everyone who comes along on the day there will be refreshments at the end of the walk as well as a demonstration from one of the dog handlers from the dog handling unit at Portlaoise prison.

There will also be an ice cream van on site after the walk to refresh the intrepid explorers. It may be too late for people to get a sponsorship card to gather money but everyone is welcome on the day and they can give a donation on the day if they wish. Visit the

LSPCA page on Facebook for more information.
