A photographer has raised more than £3,000 for an animal sanctuary by photographing people’s dogs.

Phil Girdlestone began volunteering for Holly Hedge Animal Sanctuary, in Barrow Gurney, in 2014 after setting up his own photography business.

Phil was inspired by his mother who would volunteer to walk dogs from the sanctuary.

He said: “My mother wanted her own dog but she wasn’t in a position to get one.

“She began walking dogs for Holly Hedge Animal Sanctuary and when I started my own pet photography business I decided to give back to the charity in my own way.”

Phil, who usually charges £175 for a professional photograph, has been offering the sanctuary’s supporters portraits for just £20, all of which goes towards Holly Hedge.
