Blue Peter on location at Portishead Quays Marina

Blue Peter presenter Radzi Chinyanganya had his hands full last week when the popular BBC Children's programme visited Portishead Quays Marina to do some filming with Newfoundland Dogs, Landie and Darcy from North Somerset based charity fundraisers, Newfound Friends.

Newfoundland Dogs, which can weigh up to 13 stone, have a great tradition in marine rescue and Newfound Friends raise money for Children's Charities at a number of displays by 'rescuing' volunteers who generate sponsorship for the privilege. The dogs are regular visitors to Portishead Quays Marina and will also be appearing at The All Wales Boatshow at Conwy Quays Marina on 31st May.
