Celebrity interior designer Linda Barker is to walk her dog across Yorkshire's three peaks, supported by local brewer Theakston.

The Yorkshire-born celebrity and her daschund, Tiger Lily will walk with 17 others across the peaks to raise money for Sue Ryder Care on June 7.

T&R Theakston is offering a few pints on the house for all of the walkers after they complete the 12-hour climb, which will see the party ascend over 5,000 feet.

Barker said: "We are absolutely delighted for the support that Theakston's is showing us as we try to raise as much money as we can for Sue Ryder Care.

"Like the three peaks, Theakstons is an iconic piece of Yorkshire. It is wonderful to have the support of the brewery and knowing that a glass or two will be waiting for us all at the end will certainly help us to complete the climb."

Simon Theakston, executive director of the brewery, said: "When we heard that Linda was planning to walk the three peaks for such a good cause we wanted to get involved and offer our support.

"There is nothing more perfect than a long walk to build up a thirst and a pint of Theakstons always hits the spot. You could even call it hair of the dog in honour of Tiger Lily leading the way."
