THE Heyshott headquarters of Canine Partners was transformed into a winter wonderland when the charity held its annual fundraising Christmas Market.

And visitors raised more than £2,000 as they got into the festive spirit as they met Santa Clause in his grotto where he was joined by a special helper in the shape of one of the charity’s four legged demonstration partners.

They tucked into mince pies and sipped mulled wine while browsing the food, arts and craft stalls and activities and the live a-capella group ‘In Accord’ got everyone into the jovial mood.

Holly Bryan, events co-ordinator said: “The money raised will enable us to train more dogs for people with disabilities, transforming even more lives.
