Charity the winner at Peterborough dog track
Peterborough Greyhound Stadium produced another winner – after they raised more than £14,000 for Cancer Research UK.
The money was raised at a charity spectacular last month, which saw fundraisers dressing as dogs to take part in special races around the track, as well as a tombola, a raffle and a prize draw.
On the night, all 12 races were also sponsored by Peterborough businesses to add to the fund.
A spokesman for the stadium said the £14,700 was more than they had been expecting to raise on the night. The money will be forwarded onto the Cancer Research unit the charity occupies at Addenbrooke’s Hospital.
