STAFF at a veterinary hospital spent 12 hours cycling to raise cash for Hounds for Heroes.

The workers at Sanctuary Vets in Farlington cycled non-stop to raise cash for the charity, which provides trained assistance dogs to injured and disabled men and women of the armed forces and emergency services.

Representatives from Hounds for Heroes also brought some of their dogs along to the surgery to tell visitors what they do.

Kennel technician Emma Calder said: ‘It went really well and we had a good time.

‘We wanted to raise money for Hounds for Heroes because it is a worthy cause and a local charity too, being from Petersfield.’

The day raised around £340.
