A FUNDRAISING gala in Hillsborough Park raised £2,000 for Sheffield-based charity Support Dogs.
Lauren Moore, Support Dogs community fundraiser, said: “It was very hard work but it all seems to have paid off.
“Not only have we taken a fair amount of cash to help us with immediate funding issues but we also got across to several thousand people the message of what we are all about.
“We also signed up around 20 people for our first ever organised sky dive later this year.”
The Deputy Lord Mayor of Sheffield, Councillor John Campbell, who officially opened the event, said: “The work Support Dogs do is crucial to helping improve the lives of so many people as they struggle to cope with all manner of disability.”
