Fundraising dog set to retire

A furry fundraiser is set to hang up her lead and enjoy a well-deserved retirement after raising thousands of pounds for charity.

Mrs McEwan, 75, and Poppy, her terrier cross, have been doing sponsored walks since 2008.

“She’s raised thousands over the years,” said Mrs McEwan. “But she was just getting too old. “On her last sponsored walk we did a circuit around Arncot which raised £1,600 but she was sick afterwards, and I knew it was time for her to stop.”

Mrs McEwan began raising money for The Churchill Hospital after her husband Thomas died of lung cancer 22 years ago.
