Retriever puppy Jaypee has helped hit the fundraising target in memory of Barnstaple surgeon John Partridge.

The appeal for a Guide Dog puppy in memory of a well known North Devon doctor has reached its £10,000 target.

Golden retriever ‘Jaypee’ was named after retired Barnstaple surgeon John ‘JP’ Partridge, who died in March last year.

The John Partridge Guide Dogs Tribute Fund was started by his family and son Philip said:

“Thanks to the Gazette and the generosity of North Devonians, the fund has just reached its £10,000 target.
