A KNUTSFORD Scout leader is appealing for tinned dog food and blankets to support Cheshire Dogs Home this Christmas.

Lisa Howard, of Lowe Drive, is asking residents to donate items to her by 1pm on Christmas Eve for her to drop off at the Grappenhall charity.

The leader of 2nd Knutsford Scouts knows first hand the good work that Cheshire Dogs Home does as her two-year-old boxer cross Max used to live there.

Lisa also has a two-year-old greyhound staffie cross called Zak.

To donate food and blankets, pop to Lisa's house at 19 Lowe Drive or give her a call on 07896316719.
