FUTURE vets have raised hundreds of pounds for two animal charities – with the help of some feathered friends.

Students at Edinburgh ­College held a campus fun day, which included everything from handling spectacular birds of prey and bucking bronco rides to animal face painting, all to raise money for Hounds for Heroes and the fire-hit Five Sisters Zoo.

Wendy Reid, learner development tutor, said: “I was delighted with the effort and planning that our students put in to their event. For many, it was the first time they had undertaken such a task and I am very proud of everything they have achieved.

“The students have all put a lot of thought into who should benefit from their efforts, and the Five Sisters Zoo and Hounds for Heroes charities are close to their hearts.”
