The fifth WJ’s Doggy Fun Day in aid of Guide Dogs was held at Heath Rugby Club in Greetland.
The event was organised by Wendy Jones of WJ’s Canine Services, a dog walking, pet taxi and microchipping business in Halifax. it has become an annual event with all proceeds going to the charity.
The weather was fabulous and a massive £1,848.87 was raised on the day, with more to come. All of the proceeds will go to Guide Dogs to support a working guide dog partnership.
Organiser, Wendy Jones, said: “Two of our volunteers who work for Lloyds bank are trying to get match funding and an anonymous donor promised £500 if I could get actor Chris Chittell who plays Eric Pollard in Emmerdale to dance the twist in the main ring. Chris kindly obliged. His dancing partner was a blind lady who did a fantastic job not falling over!
"All in all it was a fantastic day and we are so proud that the much needed funds raised will go towards another life changing guide dog partnership.”
