A family dog show put on by Offwell Primary School’s Parent, Teacher and Friends Association (PTFA) has raised more than £800 for the group.

PTFA member Donna Yaxley-Doble said that ‘perfect weather’ helped the success of the show, which was held on Offwell Recreation Ground.

Donna said: “There was a great turnout and the weather was perfect - not too hot or too cold.

“Everybody thoroughly enjoyed themselves and, hopefully, all went home with a prize.

“It was just fun for everybody to get involved.”

The money raised will be funnelled back into the school, but PTFA members are yet to decide on what it will be spent on.
