"St. Oswald's Hospice offers an invaluable service to patients and their families across the region. So, when we were invited to take part in the Great North Snowdogs project, we were delighted to accept. We're looking forward to the launch of the trail - we're sure it will raise awareness and funds for such a great cause, add a splash of colour to all our lives, and bring smiles to faces right across Tyne and Wear!"
