A CALENDAR featuring local guide dog puppies and their trainers has raised £1,800 for charity.

The 2012 calendar, which has been on sale since late last year, was produced by Venture Photography in Leamington and funds from sales are going to the Guide Dogs Training Centre.

It was released to mark the charity's 80th anniversary year and features local trainers and guide dog puppies being put through their paces.

Liz Gilbert, Guide Dogs community fund-raiser, said it had been a “successful and rewarding” project which had raised vital funds to provide freedom of movement for blind and partially sighted people.

Chris Barber, owner of Venture Photography in Regent Court, said: “We’ve all had a lot of fun working on this calendar and have been thrilled with the support it’s received.”
