STUDENTS from Huddersfield Technical College will be stepping out to raise cash for an animal charity.
Students on the Tech's animal care course have organised a sponsored dog walk through Huddersfield town centre on Saturday.
The walk is being held to raise money for Sowerby Bridge-based Tia Greyhound and Lurcher Rescue.
Within a month, Tia is to lose the land it rents from Yorkshire Water.
Susan Dawson, a Tia volunteer from Meltham, said: "We are not getting anywhere trying to rent new premises, so we are trying to raise money to buy our own land."
Saffron Stanfield, animal care lecturer, has helped the students organise the event.
She said: "I heard about Tia's problems and told the students. They got quite upset and decided we had to do something.
"We felt bad because the animal care department is getting a new £1.6m facility while Tia are losing theirs.
"They do incredible work. We hope they can move to Huddersfield, because then our students would be able to visit."
The walk starts at 11am in the college car park on New North Road.
Anyone who wants to help or offer sponsorship, should contact Ms Stanfield at the college on 01484 536521.
