An animal charity in Kensal Green will be holding its annual fundraising dog event in Hyde Park on Sunday.

The Mayhew Animal Home’s Hyde Bark involves a host of canine-themed events including its celebrity-judged dog show.

This year’s judges include broadcaster and bird watcher Bill Oddie OBE, animal welfare campaigning actor Peter Egan and celebrity vet Marc Abraham.

They will be choosing from the categories including waggiest tail, best friends, sweetest staffie and best trick on behalf of the sanctuary which is based in Trenmar Gardens.

Mr Egan said: “I really admire The Mayhew’s work including its rehoming programme, neutering policies and terrific animal accommodation which acclimatises abandoned dogs and cats into a friendly and homelike atmosphere. Hyde Bark is a great event for a great charity.

“I’m a huge fan of the work the Mayhew does on so many levels!”

There will also be a sponsored walk at the event, now in its third year, which raised nearly £20,000 last year an attracted more than 400 visitors.
