Among charities raising money was Central German Shepherd Rescue and members Anne Kozak and Bev Chamerlain were there with Destiny, a dog who touched Guardian readers hearts two years ago when her life was saved along with that of her puppy, Remo.
The event was also supported by Donington’s retained firefighters and LIVES.
District and parish councillor Jane King, who helped with the event, said there was a good turnout from the public and it’s likely there will be another event next year.
She said: “A lot of our shopkeepers do go the extra mile for the village.”
