WOOF Mudder, a big fundraiser for St Luke's Hospice has been postponed due to the coronavirus crisis.

The event attracted more than 200 dogs and their owners at Blakemere Village in Sandiway last year and raised £15,000 for the charity.

The fun challenge was to have been held on March 29 at Dorfold Hall in Nantwich, a beautiful estate which has offered to host even more obstacles.

Woof Mudder will now take place in early September. A date has yet to be confirmed.

It is just one of a range of fundraising events that have been reorganised.
