More than £9,000 has been raised at a fun day hosted by The Guide Dog Training school in Woodford Green.

The annual event featured a dog show, live music, a crafts fair, and a sniffer dog demonstration.

There was also face painting, a bouncy castle and opportunities for visitors to have their photos taken with some of the four-legged friends.

Fundraising manager, Lorna Copland, said the fun day was a big success.

“The support from the public was fantastic,” she said. “We had support from local companies who came to help out on the day which helped us to spread the word about what we do.

“We are still toting up the numbers but on the day, we raised over £9,000 which we were really chuffed with. The money we raised will go towards continuing and growing our service.”
