Summer Party Big Success

Posted by Lyndon Basha in Events, News | Article permalink on Jul 16 2019

Sunday 14 July was a historic day, England won the cricket Word Cup for the first time, the men’s final at Wimbledon was the longest ever played, and the Animal Ark community came out in full strength. 

The early morning wet weather gradually cleared to glorious sunshine by mid afternoon as people enjoyed a barbeque and drinks while listening to fantastic music performed by ‘Heaven Can Wait’ and ‘Bonnie Diamond & Coe’ (who both kindly donated their time).

People were entertained with face painting, barn owls, and weird and wonderful reptiles (thanks to Scott Bixby and the Egaltons).

The nursing team really outdid themselves this year, with fantastic presentations and demonstrations on re-homing, hydrotherapy behaviour, allergies, joint care, parasites, laboratory, diagnostics, surgery and emergency care.

Lewis and his pals from the British Motorcyclists Federation (BMF) continued their support with their pet food run setting out from High Beach, Epping. 

Raffle Prize Draw Winners were present at the draw or are being notified by phone. Congratulations to our major prize winners:

1st Prize: Aspinal of London designer handbag kindly donated by Ms Gordon (won by Marion)
2nd Prize: £150 Amazon Vouchers (won by Chris)
3rd Prize: Google Home (won by Vikki)

The day managed to raise over £2,000 for local animal charities and Animal Ark’s Stray Fund.  A big thank you to those who came and for your kind generosity.

Duncan Smith took photos on the day, some of which we will be selecting to put up in our new Consulting Rooms. We will be in contact with those people once we have had an opportunity to review so many fantastic photos. 

Also a big thanks to everyone, including volunteers, who helped make the day such a success.

We look forward to seeing you over the rest of the year and we also hope to see you at our next event on the first Saturday in December – for Santa’s Grotto & Minced Pies.

    Was a fantastic day, even though we didn’t stay long and it was fantastic to see the shock on Lyndons face when we gave him the donation lol. Also sponsoring a cat was an excellent idea and very worth the money.
