AN ASHBOURNE animal charity has raised more than £500 by holding street collections in the town.
Rescue dogs Evie and Danni accompanied volunteers from Brailsford-based dog-rescue charity Just For Dogs for the collections, at the weekend to help raise awareness of the charity and boost funds.
Organiser Daniel Macqueen said: “Our rescue centre’s location, between Hulland Ward and Brailsford, is a bit tucked away, so collection days are just as much about reminding the world that we exist as they are about raising funds. Spending a summer day in Ashbourne is always a treat.
“An enormous thank-you to Ashbourne’s shoppers and day-visitors for showing us how much they love animals.”
