WALKERS braved the rain and raised thousands of pounds for a charity which helps out people with disabilities.

A total of 114 people hiked through the grounds of Holywell House, in Swanmore, on Saturday, April 28.

Their efforts helped raise £2,000 for Canine Partners, which provides trained dogs for people in need.

Meon Valley Lions Club dished up a barbecue at the end of the three-mile trek.

Organiser Libby Rome said: ‘The walk at Holywell went really well despite the constant rain.

‘We are very grateful to the Earl and Countess of Clarendon for kindly allowing us to use Holywell as a venue for the walk and we were pleased they could join us on the day.’
