A care home in Dumfries has donated £500 to a charity with which it enjoys close links.
Lochduhar general manager Wendy Carruthers presented a cheque to representatives of Therapet this week. Therapet's member Brian McMeeken and his dog Poppy have been fortnightly visitors to the home for the last three years to give pet therapy to residents, who get the chance to pet the dog and chat about their own animals.
Wendy said: " The benefits of this to residents are great and this is why we have chosen to donate to the charity."
