The money will go to essential supplies for the shelter and also for some toys and agility equipment.

Sam Johnston, said: “This started off as an important part of our course, but the more we found out about the shelter, the closer it became to our hearts. It was great to come down and hand in the cash we raised and see what they do and the dogs, at first hand.”

Anne Vines, Kennel Keeper at Bandeath, said: “The generosity of the students has been amazing. I’ve been looking to get new exercise and agility equipment for the dogs and this will certainly contribute greatly.”
