A 10-YEAR-OLD Bury Grammar pupil has taken her fundraising for animal rescue centres past the £10,000 mark.

Entrepreneurial Scarlett Berry has raised most of the cash through selling homemade dog biscuits, a venture she started when she was only eight.

On Saturday, Scarlett welcomed more than 25 animal rescue groups to Central Park in Westhoughton, for the second Barking Berry’s Dog Show.

Last year, she was invited to a ceremony for the Daily Mirror Animal Hero Awards after being nominated for Young Animal Enthusiast of the Year.

Her mum Sarah Dunscombe-Berry said their weekends have been taken over with baking dog biscuits, while they have also taken in three rescue dogs.

Mrs Dunscombe-Berry said: “More or less since Scarlett could speak, she wanted to be a vet.

“You have to be 14 to volunteer at animal rescue centres and she wanted to do something now.”

Horse and bird rescue organisations also attended the June 28 dog show, which featured 15 classes, 40 stalls, children’s activities.

All funds raised will benefit Bolton Destitute Animal Shelter and Dogs Trust Merseyside.

Scarlett, who lives in Westhoughton, said: “It was such good fun last time and this year it was better than ever.”
