Dogged fundraisers aiming to help cancer patients are staging a new event for their pet charity next month.

A Companion Dog Show at Worstead on May 19 will help the Targeted Radiotherapy Appeal at the Norfolk and Norwich University.

The fund, which has a £600,000 target, will develop a new suite, providing state-of-the-art facilities for people undergoing internal radiotherapy, known as high dose rate (HDR) brachytherapy.

The dog show is being organised by radiotherapy appointments co-ordinator Tricia Baker, 58, from Buxton with friend Linda Lloyd, 54, from Norwich, who are both dog lovers.

Hospital fundraising manager Louise Cook said: 'We are so pleased that Tricia and Linda have decided to help raise money for our Targeted Radiotherapy Appeal.

'I know they have put a lot of work into organising a fun day that will at the same time raise much needed money for the appeal. If you have a dog or like dogs please go along on the day and support the event.'

Ms Baker said the day was weather proof because it had indoor and outdoor facilities. It would be fun and featured a raffle and a photographer to turn pictures of favourite pets into key rings.
