Following the launch in last week’s Observer entries are flooding in for a pooch photo competition. Demelza Hospice Care for Children challenged readers to send pictures of their prized pet to feature on posters for a fundraising dog walk.

The charity is holding a ‘Pooches on the Prom’ on Sunday May 24 at the Metropole Lawns on Western Parade. Entries are £5 per dog and all money raised will provide hospice care to children. The event kicks off at 11am and afterwards there will be a fun dog show with ten classes.

Pictured is two year old Lhasa Apso Bertie who fancies his chances. If you think your dog can pip him to the post then e-mail a photo to julie.brett@demelza.org.uk and include your phone number so that you can be contacted for entry details, as the competition is only open to dogs registered and pre-paid for the walk. Entries close midnight on Tuesday March 24. For more info call 07917 603075 or go to www.facebook.com/bexhillpooch
