A CHEQUE for £2,000 was presented to the Dorset and Somerset Air Ambulance at a puppy show held by the Taunton Vale Foxhounds.

Several members of the hunt have needed the air ambulance following falls from horses.

The money was raised through a 'Fallers Fund' and an end of season Faller's supper.

The puppy show took place at the kennels in Henlade.
