Organised by salon owner Lucy Bishop and staff member Jane Sinclair - with the help of eight-year-old labrador Benson Bishop - the fundraiser offered homemade cakes, coffee, tea and even sweet treats for dogs to boost funds on the day.

Lucy said: “I wanted to hold a fundraiser to give something back to the community.

“It’s a good cause that of course we would like to help, and we never know when we might need it.”
