Oak Trees representative Caroline Johnson said: “We are absolutely paw-struck by the success of the Santa Paws event at Caledonia Park Designer Outlet.

“The funds raised will make a significant difference to local animals in need. We are truly grateful to Caledonia Park Designer Outlet and all the pet owners who participated.”
