Fourteen-year-old fundraiser Hannah Burton and her Yorkshire terrier Kiwi led a charity dog walk along the seafront at Hunstanton at the weekend.

Nearly a dozen other dogs and their owners joined them and between them they raised £650 for a cause which is close to Hannah's heart.

Over the years creative Hannah has come up with ideas and raised thousands for Children with Cancer funds following one of her cousins being diagnosed with neuroblastoma and another with leukaemia.

Her grandmother Monica Burton explained how well the event went in spite of the weather.

She said: “We expected to get one or two dogs but ended up with 11 and everyone had a great time even though it rained and some of them got a soaking towards the end.

“We started from Old Hunstanton lighthouse and walked along the prom before turning round and walking back. It was a total of about 5k in all.”

She said that Hannah had been promised a dog if she could get her fundraising total to £3000 and she exceeded that so along came Kiwi. The little dog's canine friend had died recently so Hannah thought a dog walk would cheer him up.

A local branch of Swags and Wags, which specialises in dogs' wardrobes and accessories, also turned out to support them and hand out treats to the four-legged walkers.
