Mum Lindsey said: "During lockdown Beth decided she wanted to bake dog biscuits.

"We did a trial run in the village and they went down so well it gave her the encouragement to make more."

Lindsey said Beth, who goes to Wimbish Primary, has been involved with dogs since she was a baby.

The hospice has been chosen as a beneficiary of the fundraising scheme in recognition of the care given to a resident in the village, who used to show dogs. Her husband chose the charity.
