STAFF at Dogs Trust Cowbridge’s charity shop were greeted by queues of people one Saturday recently - all waiting to buy a piece of Sully resident John Barrowman!

The dog-loving star of stage and screen donated clothes and personal belongings to the shop, and so far more than £2,000 has been raised, with more still to come in.

Rhia Stankovic-Jones, Dogs Trust Cowbridge Charity Shop manager said: "We were amazed by the extent of John’s donation, and are delighted with the support his fans have shown and how this has translated into sales!

"We know he has a huge worldwide fan base but it seems he has a lot of local supporters too!

"Fans queued at the door to get a piece of the action, from suits he’s worn on TV to household goods."

One dedicated fan travelled from Nottingham, and spent £600 on items including shirts and a Ralph Lauren hoodie!

"If you weren’t able to make your way to the shop, we’ve put a number of items on our eBay site which are still taking bids," added Rhia.

Proceeds go towards the care of dogs in Dogs Trust rehoming centres. Find out more at
