The money raised from the walk will go towards Martlets Hospice in Hove.

Pooches on the Prom starts at the Big Beach Café, where dogs and their owners can stroll to the Peace Statue and back, or take the longer route to Brighton Pier.

With prizes for the best dressed pooch there’s sure to be some well-dressed entrants enjoying a walk along the prom.

Every pooch taking part gets medal and a doggy bag as a thank-you for their efforts in raising money for the hospice.

Clem Hunnisett, community fundraiser at Martlets Hospice said: “This is the ‘must-do’ event of the year for generous-hearted pooches and their owners; raising essential funds that will help us to care for our patients and their families.

“This year we’re hoping that more than 100 dogs and their owners will take part in this fun family event to help us to raise over £4,000 for the Hospice.

“Registration is £7 per dog but accompanying humans can take part for free!”
