Fun dog show all for a good cause
DOG-owners are being invited to have a fun day out and help support The Cornishman's Heart Start campaign.
Supporter of the drive to get more public access defibrillators, Ann Shaw, has organised a fun dog show at the Pirate Inn, Alverton, Penzance this Saturday in a bid to raise money to buy the lifesaving equipment for local schools.
Founder of the Ronnie Richards Memorial Charity, Paul Williams, who has been working with The Cornishman in the campaign, said he hopes the event will provide a funding boost and help towards the Heart Start campaign's aim to get 100 lifesaving defibrillators into schools, communities and public places.
He said: "There are already seven local schools equipped with defibrillators in the RRMC/Cornishman Heart Start campaign and that number is rapidly increasing, but there can be no rest until all our schools in the county are covered.

"A child's life is especially precious and we must ensure that full and proper medical equipment is available. That includes defibrillators and people trained to use them.
"Sudden Cardiac Arrest (SCA) can strike anyone at any time and that includes the healthiest in society.
"It often strikes for no apparent reason. Currently less than 5 per cent of victims in the UK survive, mainly because a defibrillator does not arrive in time."
Now Mr Williams is appealing for readers to support the family fun day and help raise money for the cause.
There will be 20 classes at the dog show with rosettes from first to fourth place and judging will start at 1pm.
Entry will cost £1 per class.
Mr Williams added: "The RRMC has secured unbeatable prices for top-quality equipment and every penny in savings is passed on. We are a small team of dedicated unpaid volunteers very passionate in all that we do."
