Haven House’s 3-mile sponsored dog walk is taking place on Chingford Plain from 11am today.
As well as the walk, there will also be competitions, pet merchandise, refreshments and a doggy bag for each participant.
The money raised will go towards the charity’s work with life limited and life threatened children in the local area.

The Co-op in Wanstead will close for 11 days as it undergoes an £820,000 refurbishment.
The supermarket will close at 6pm on the 7th July and re-open on July 19th.
The new-look store will stock improved ranges of fresh and chilled produce, with a wider choice of ready meals and a new salad bar.
The Co-operative made this statement:
“We would like to clarify that the majority of the store team had paid holiday during the refit.
“Our colleagues who did not wish to take a paid holiday were utilised at our Barkingside store which is within commutable distance.”
White lines and Olympic Rings to mark the 2012 Games will start appearing on the roads as of tomorrow.
Transport for London will start working on the Olympic Route Network overnight tonight but road users can continue to use all lanes until 25th July.
To keep any disruption to an absolute minimum, the work will take place overnight and will not require road closures – the small areas being worked on will be cordoned off for a short time, with traffic directed around them.
Motorists are advised to avoid driving in central London, around the ORN and Games venues from mid-July.
During the Games, there will be up to 1,300 Games family vehicles an hour travelling between key venues.
A penalty charge of £130 will be issued to owners of vehicles who break the regulations, including driving in Games lanes or stopping along the route and any illegally parked vehicle will be removed to a vehicle pound and may incur a release fee of £200.
