Hundreds of pounds have been raised towards the foster care of greyhounds.

Greyhound protection and awareness group, Action for Greyhounds (AFG), held a street collection and awareness day on Haymarket and Gentleman's Walk in Norwich on June 23.

Annie Boddey, co-founder of AFG, said: 'We would like to thank all members of the public for their fantastic support with their generous donations totalling to the amazing amount raised of £638.

'This amount will go a long way to help maintain our vital work and help fund the care of foster hounds in our care awaiting their forever homes.'

AFG is a not-for-profit organisation that campaigns for the abolition of greyhound racing, as well as facilitating care for unwanted and abused greyhounds.
