Every dog had its day when students and staff from Newton House at the Peele Community College in Long Sutton raised £680 for their chosen charity Medical Detection Dogs.

The dog show took place in the college grounds on Saturday.

Newton House has been working hard all year to raise £2,000 to sponsor a Medical Detection Dogs trained puppy and name it ‘Newton’.

The dog show played host to many different activities – a small animal display by ‘Animal Investigations’. Kirsty Wattam (Year 8 student) and her parents allowed visitors to hold a selection of animals, from meerkats to a very grand eagle owl.

Medical detection dogs went along with two of their amazing animals, Magic and Simba. ‘Smurf’ the celebrity dog performed and amazed the audience with his vast display of tricks and treats and Hayley Wilson and her team gave their time to put on a dog agility show where students could ‘have a go’ with her beautiful dogs.
