More than £650 was raised by ticket sales from the event which was held at Bamber Bridge FC’s Sir Tom Finney Stadium.

And Jane Kitchen, a volunteer at Preston charity Homeless Hounds, says the money will go towards vaccinations of dogs coming into the home.

“Bamber Bridge gave us the use of the venue for free and we hired a company to do the show,” she said.

“Women could buy discounted high street brands and we got to keep the ticket sales because we had at least 80 people there.

“We also had a raffle and raised £668 which will pay for new dogs to be vaccinated and have chips inserted.

“It keeps them healthy but also means they can be re-homed which is really great news.”
