The campaign to raise £5,000 needed to finance a dog’s life-saving operation has reached the half way mark after four months of intense fundraising.

A bingo night at Ingoldisthorpe village hall on Friday helped to swell the fund for Ziggy, who has badly deformed front legs.

But his owner, Beth Southwell, pictured above left, is fighting against time to raise the remaining £2,500 by October.

The four-year-old dog has deformed front legs, a condition known as short ulna syndrome, and the Dersingham doctor’s receptionist knows Ziggy may have to be put down if the money is not raised by October.

But family and friends are rallying round to save Ziggy. Bingo caller, Garry Grange, gave his services free whilst close friend, Antje Franke, right, donated a cuddly toy rabbit for a Name-that-Bunny competition.

A raffle helped swell the appeal funds even more and the evening raised £192.
