Hundreds of people attended the Dogs Trust Loughboroughs Christmas fair at its rehoming centre in Wymeswold.
Visitors were treated to a day that included gift stalls, merchandise sales, mince pies, Christmas cake and a visit from Santa.
Other highlights included a tombola, raffle and a fun kid’s zone with games galore.
Ella Tonge, Dogs Trust Loughborough supporter relations officer, said:”Thank you to everyone who came long. It was fantastic to see so many former residents and meet some new faces too.
“We raised an incredible £4,825 - our best total ever! All thanks to gave donations and volunteered their time.”
