Staff at Dogs Trust Loughborough in Wymeswold are celebrating after their Christmas Fair raised £7,000.

With Santa Paws on hand to celebrate with two-legged and four-legged visitors, last month’s event featured raffles, tombolas, gift and craft stalls selling perfect Christmas presents and stocking fillers, a children’s activity zone, cake stalls and festive refreshments.

Ella Tonge, Dogs Trust Loughborough supporter relations officer, said: “On average it costs almost £40 a day to care for each of our beautiful dogs, so it’s wonderful that so much has been raised as every penny will be spent on making sure they’ve everything they need.

“Without the support of the dog loving pubic we wouldn’t be able to care for our dogs in the way we do, so we’d like to say a huge thank you and wish everyone, and their pooches, a Happy Christmas and a happy and healthy 2018.”
