Joy Palmer Cooper was elected as President of the club in 2019 and chose Canine Partners as her charity.
She set a target of raising £1,000 but, three years on, has actually managed to collect £7,500. And now thanks to an anonymous donor, who has doubled the figure, a magnificent £15,000 has been presented to the organisation.
