Charity Open Day Update
On Sunday 23rd June we opened our doors for our annual Charity Open Day. Our charity this year is Canine Partners the charity that trains assistance dogs for the disabled. We welcomed hundreds of visitors, some were old friends but very many were new and we loved meeting and chatting with them all. We certainly had a great day and really hope that everyone that visited had a great day too. The snakes were a big hit, 75 people had a guess at Kevin the tortoises' age and there were lots of things to do for everyone. The poor face painter had a queue that just didn't seem to get smaller for the whole day.
Over £500 was raised taking into account money raised at both the Old Town Dog Show and Charity Open Day!
A huge thank you to all of the companies and individuals that donated prizes, money or their time. Thank you also to all who visited us and reached into their pockets to buy raffle tickets and enter competitions to help us raise money. Canine Partners is a small charity doing a wonderful job and we know that the money will be put to good use. There will be more interesting events throughout the year. If you can't make any of our events but would like to make a donation direct to Canine Partners, please follow the link below or a donation can be left with one of our Client Care team members at reception.
