After meeting at noon at the hotel, participants will go on a short walk in Beamish Woods.

The trust will have a gazebo and stalls in the grounds.

A trust spokesman said: “Our aim is to bring together people who have adopted greyhounds, or people who are thinking about adopting a greyhound, and greyhound lovers in general.

“We need to raise more awareness about retired greyhounds and encourage more public interaction with them.”
