A FAMILY friendly dog festival is set to raise money for a rescue charity as well as life-saving kit.

Burnham's Woof Fest was first held last year at Parlour Cafe on Creeksea Place Farm in aid of Spirit of the Dog Rescue.

The event raised £1,244 for the charity and was hugely popular, so the cafe has decided to run it again.

There's a range of pooch related entertainment throughout the day for festival-goers to enjoy.

This includes a dog talent show within the cafe garden, a charity raffle, dog-related stallholders in The Canary Shed, a photographer offering dog photoshoot sessions and fly-ball sessions.

A spokesman for Creeksea Place Barns said: "This year not only will we be fundraising in aid of Spirit of The Dog Rescue, we will also be raising funds to enable us to buy and install an on site defibrillator.

"When a defibrillator is used within three to five minutess of a cardiac arrest, the survival rate can increase to between 50 per cent and 70 per cent."

Woof Fest is being held on Saturday, May 7, between 10am and 3pm.

Entry is free with donations being taken on the day.

If enough funds are raised, the new onsite defibrillator would be accessible for public use.
