Rescue charity wants to set Kent record

Calling all Labradors and their owners – you are invited to an attempt to set a record this Saturday.

Labrador Rescue Kent and Borders is inviting dogs and their owners across Kent, south London and East Sussex to a sponsored walk on Saturday which it is hoping will set a record for the biggest official gathering of labradors in Kent.

The world record for the largest single-breed dog walk is 700 labradors and was set in Poland in 2010.

Trustee Caroline Halford said: “We would like to invite labrador owners to come and support us, help raise money for dogs who through no fault of their own need to be rehomed, and perhaps make a record at the same time.

“We don’t think we will be able to break the world record, but we would like to set a Kent record instead!”

The 13-mile walk takes place at Bewl Water and starts at 9.30am.

You should register at - a sponsorship form will then be emailed back to you - or on the LRK Justgiving website.
