SPOTTY, dotty and potty were the themes for the unusual Coddenham fun day.

The event was held on Saturday in honour of one of the village's cutest residents, Dotty the Dalmatian puppy.

Dotty, who is deaf, was acquired from the All Dalmatian Rescue, based in Clacton.

As a thank you, her owners, Sue and Jon Thom, decided to hold a special black-and-white themed fun day at the village hall. The festivities continued throughout the night with a disco and charity auction.

Mrs Thom said: “We wanted to send Jan Gent (who runs All Dalmatian Rescue with her partner) some pictures of Dotty.

“It turned out she hadn't got a computer so we thought we would try and raise a bit of money to get her one and it's just ballooned from there.

“We were aiming for a computer and now we're looking at raising a couple of thousand pounds. The support we have had from everybody is amazing.”

Mrs Thom wanted to thank Paul Benneworth, Rachel and Mark from the Cross Keys in Henley and Trevor and Stella.
