Charities Benefit From Summer Fair

Posted by Lyndon Basha in Events, News | Article permalink on Aug 07 2015

The sun, people, animals and lots of goodwill were in abundance at the Summer Fair and Open Day on Sunday 2nd August.

The British Motorcyclists Federation (BMF) support was once again fantastic as they roared in with a stack of pet food donations that will be put to good use by local animal charities.

The Animal Ark community managed to raise over £2,500 for local animal charities and Animal Ark’s Stray Fund.  People’s generosity and the Animal ark community spirit never fail to impress. Thank you for your generous support.

The day had a very relaxed feel, with people and pets enjoying the sunshine as they mingled amongst each other whilst enjoying a charcoal bbq and drinks.

People got to see what goes on behind the scenes, with interactive demonstrations and simulations including  simulated ‘exploratory surgery’ made from a jelly pit.

Kids and big kids were kept amused with face painting and fun activities throughout the practice.

A big hit was Bobbi and Xena, a 9 year old Urasian Tawney Owl and  2 year old Harris Hawk. Thank you to the Bixby clan for attending, providing a visual and educational experience for all.

Thank you to all those who kindly baked items for the cake stall which was as big a hit as usual.

A special thank you goes to Ifti Khan of Kebabish Original who provided the food, no small feat as we fed over 500 people!

Raffle Prize Draw Winners have been notified by phone. Congratulations to our major prize winners: 1st Prize – Red Letter Day Experience (Mrs Pilott), Dinner at the Shard (Mrs Brunton), Human Hamper by M&S (Mrs Clarke), Dog Hamper (Ms Edmundson) and a cake kindly re- donated to the staff to enjoy ( Ms Collins).

As always, a day like this takes a lot of effort and preparation and it would not have been the success it was without the support provided by all those involved.

On behalf of our furry friends we would like to say a big thank you for everyone’s support and generosity. Thank you.
