LEWIS LEAP CAMMO DOG SHOW AUGUST 2023
RAISED - £4,148
What an amazing day we had at the 2nd Lewis Leap Dog Show in Cammo.
The sun shone, tails wagged, rosettes were won, money was raised and lots of fun was had by all. As well as 9 judging categories - which culminated in the prestigious "Best in Show" (pictured) - there was a host of other fun attractions including food stalls (hotdogs, naturally), tombola and doggy merchandise. There was even a Dog Bar serving Puppuccinos & dog treats to the stars of the show!
Thank you for supporting Lewis Leap & Cruse Scotland.

RAISED OVER £9,100 (Including Gift Aid)
