Fun in the Sun at Summer Fair

Posted by Lyndon Basha in Events, News | Article permalink on Jul 19 2016

Early showers could not dampen the spirit as the sun, people, animals and pets came out in abundance in the afternoon at the Summer Fair and Open Day on Sunday 17th July.

There were lots on offer to entertain, from face painting to hydrotherapy demonstrations, from weird and wonderful x-rays to simulated operations on Big Ted, and from giant snails to other exotics.

The day managed to raise over £2,400 for local animal charities and Animal Ark’s Stay Fund.  Thank you to everyone for your generous support. In addition, there was a stack of pet food donations that will be put to good use by local animal charities.

A traditional bbq and drinks kept everyone fed and hydrated.

Baby owls melted many hearts with two great greys and four barn owls. Congratulations to Rose and Sharon who were judged the winners of the ‘pick the name’ of the great greys with the names ‘Athena’ and ‘Merlin’. Thanks to the Bixby clan for attending.

Raffle Prize Draw Winners were present at the draw on the day or have been notified by phone. Congratulations to our prize winners:

  • 1st Prize: £300 Lakeside Vouchers (won by Ms Howard is kindly going to spend the money on items for strays)
  • 2nd Prize: Michael Kors designer handbag kindly donated by Ms Gordon (won by Ms Broadbridge)
  •  3rd Prize: Lush Gift Set (Chris the Biker)
  • 4th Prize: Pet Carrier (Ms Stevens, and Annie)

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 and hope to see you at our next event on the first Saturday in December – for Santa’s Grotto & Minced Pies.
