A trio of dog charities will be given a cash boost thanks to fundraising efforts by the Hingham and District Dog Training Club.
The volunteer-run club plans to donate £200 each to the Cinnamon Trust, which helps dogs of elderly owners; Blind Dog Rescue UK, and Hales-based Meadowgreen Dog Rescue Centre.
The money was all raised at the club, which runs six-week beginners, intermediate and advanced courses for pet owners.
Debbie Drew, club trainer, said: 'The club is basically to help the dogs so that the dogs have a better time with their owners and the owners have a better time with their dogs. It really helps the dogs get socialised.
'The club is thriving and new people are aways welcome.'
