Pupils at Great Torrington Bluecoat Primary School have rallied round to collect donations for an animal rehoming centre.

Great Torrington Bluecoat Primary School pupils have rallied together to collect donations for an animal rehoming centre.

They brought in a range of dog and cat treats for the Tiverton Blue Cross centre, as well as peanut butter and hot dog sausages that the staff use for training purposes.

When the treats were delivered, pupils were able to meet Bennie, a 10-year-old Labrador-cross, whose photo had been used as publicity for their donation drive.

Jasmine Ayres, who led the drive, said: “As well as treats, there was an abundance of food and one kind parent even trooped around to the supermarkets asking for donations.

“The Blue Cross now also has three lovely dog beds thanks to kind families.

“The Blue Cross does an amazing job saving animals that have been abandoned, abused or handed in through no fault of their own.”
