Hundreds of furry friends and their owners turned out for a club’s annual show at the weekend.

A total of 210 ferrets were entered into the Rutland Ferret Club show at Oakham Scout Hut on Sunday.

The event also included a raffle which raised £338 for the club. The funds will be put towards veterinary care for the rescue ferrets the club takes in.

A separate raffle was held to raise funds for a ferret that needs spinal surgery.

Rutland Ferret Club chairman and founder Lisa Southernwood said: “It was very busy and we had a great turnout.

“We’re very happy to have raised as much as we did.”
