March flyball club Fenland Firestorm raised more than £600 towards getting them to Crufts next year by holding a dog show and fun day.
The fundraiser, held at Flag grass Hill Road in March, featured classes for dogs of all breeds, ages, shapes and sizes to enter including waggiest tale, most appealing eyes and best in show.
As well as the competition, there was a raffle, tombola, cake stalls and hot food van. In total, the fun day raised £605.25 which will help the club get to the flyball finals at Crufts in March 2018.
Emma Butler, one of the organisers, who runs PoshPaws, said the event was a success.
“We had a really good turnout and were pleased with how the classes and activities ran on the day.”
