Lauren Moore, of the RSPCA, who organised the event along with Laura Robinson of Cancer Research UK, said; “It was a great success.

“It was the fourth Doggy dash we have held and it has again been really popular.

“I know one of the teams taking part has raised £400 so I’m hopeful we can hit the £1,000 mark, with the money divided between the RSPCA Halifax and Huddersfield Branch and Cancer Research.”
