So the animal-loving 10 year-old asked at school if they could have a collection to help.

Deputy head Nadine Lacey said: “Dominic asked the head teacher if we could do something to help so we decided to ask for donations of cash and pet food.”

“We collected £167 and over 100 tins of food, which we were very pleased with.”

She added that the school was likely to support Thornberry again in the future.
