Hundreds of animal lovers helped raise £500 for charity at a veterinary centre’s open day.

Oakham Veterinary Hospital hosted the event on Saturday, which attracted about 300 visitors.

The day included a prize winning pony, a sniffer dog demonstration and a display from Horses Inside Out, which showed the skeleton of a horse.

Manager Matt Hecking said: “It was an excellent day and we were really pleased with the turnout.”

Funds raised are to be split between charities Spinal Research and Hounds for Heroes.
