The show at Haddiscoe Village Hall raised more than £1,600 for Prostate Cancer UK. It was organised by Louise Clarke, of Belton, whose father and partner have both battled the disease.

“I think there were a lot of people who came because it was raising money for prostate cancer,” said Louise, 46.

“We had more than 190 dogs. We wanted to raise £1,000 so to get £1,600 is just fantastic.”

The best in show title went to a Welsh springer spaniel and reserve best in show was an Australian shepherd dog.

The best puppy was a German shorthaired pointer and the winner of the novelty round was a little girl dressed in Mexican clothes with a chihuahua in a sombrero.

“I’ve had people tell me they’d love to see it become an annual event,” said Louise, who hopes her fundraiser will help fund research into a cancer cure.

Her partner, Tony Fenton, and dad, Tony Clarke, were diagnosed with prostate cancer within months of each other. Mr Fenton, received treatment at the James Paget University Hospital in Gorleston, and has received the all clear, while Louise’s dad is in recovery after treatment at the Norfolk and Norwich University Hospital.
