Staff and residents at Victoria Court residential home raised £60 for Valentino, a dog that was left tied to a post in Stapleford Cemetery in need of surgery.

They held a ‘cuties’ pet competition, which saw them email families of the resident, asking them to enter. Three of the residents were the judges.

Valentino is currently at Babbington Kennels.
