A Crufts-winning dog and owner have raised more than £1,000 through a charity walk.

Nessa Holbrow, of Berrow, and her boarder terrier, Jack, raised almost £1,200 for eating disorder charity Beat by walking from Brean Down to Burnham beach.

The pair won the Friends for Life prize at Crufts earlier this month, celebrating dogs which change people’s lives in their own unique ways.

Nessa credits Jack with helping her fight against a series of health issues, including anorexia.

She said: “He has given me a new lease of life.

“I am passionate to support and help Beat by raising awareness and challenging the stigmas surrounding eating disorders.

“I have lived with an eating disorder for close to 35 years, so I want to give as much as I can to help people overcome such complex illnesses.”
