Assistance dog charity Canine Partners has launched a community group in north Northumberland and the Scottish Borders.
The group held a launch event and awareness day at Newton Hall, Newton-by-the-Sea, last Wednesday.
The event raised more than £1,500, which included £800 from The Joiners Arms, raised by staff who took part in a Steps challenge.
The charity trains amazing assistance dogs to transform the lives of people living with disabilities across the UK, boosting their confidence and independence.
