The inaugural Ramsey Dog Club show for prize pooches raised £600 for Hounds for Heroes, a charity providing assistance dogs to help injured personnel from the armed forces or emergency services.

Held at the 1940s Camp, where the club runs its regular classes, the show featured a number of categories, such as prettiest bitch and handsomest dog, as well as a section for pedigrees.

There were also fun agility-based contests, such as fastest recall, and rosettes were presented to all the winners.

Club member and photographer for the day, Lianne Hulatt, whose photo sales helped to boost the fundraising total, said: “It was a really good turnout – we had 65 entries for the show ring.

“We wanted to do something that was for everybody and there was a really nice relaxed atmosphere.”
