A charity fun dog show, hosted by Sussex-based Grove Lodge Vets during the annual Worthing Rotary Carnival, proved a “massive success’ and raised more than £300 for a local children’s hospice.

Grove Lodge vet and show judge Marc Abraham with joint winners of Best Rescue, ex-puppy farm breeding spaniels Heidi and Lottie.The Bank Holiday event, which took place at Worthing’s famous Steyne Gardens, saw local dogs of all shapes and sizes participating in popular fun dog show classes included waggiest tail, most handsome male and best Rescue, all judged by Grove Lodge vet Marc Abraham.

Mr Abraham said: “It was a great day and I had so much fun judging. Each class was so well attended. Everybody and their dog enjoyed themselves and we’ve already been asked back next year to do it all again. The Grove Lodge team loved meeting all carnival goers and we’re all extremely proud to raise these much needed funds for our friends at Chestnut Tree House.”

Chestnut Tree House cares for children of all ages with life-limiting illnesses, as well as looking after their families. It is the only children’s hospice in East and West Sussex and cares for more than 280 children and young adults from 0-25 year of age from Sussex and south-east Hampshire.

Caroline Roberts-Quigley, community fundraiser for the hospice, thanked Grove Lodge for its support and said: “We receive very little government support, so rely on the kind and generous support of the local community. More than £300 was raised, which will give a child the chance to visit CTH for the day and enjoy our facilities and a range of activities while giving mum and dad a break from the daily care, including the opportunity to spend an hour benefiting from a swim in our hydrotherapy pool.”
