Sadly due to the weather the last few fund raisen events have been poorly turned our so on the 30th of june we planned a second event closer to home we had a better turn out and managed to raise £242.79 which helped pay some of our costs last month,

current ideas in the pipe line are;

-Southern uk sponsered dog walk, email for more details looking on 5 miles,

-Christmas cards

-next years calenders

-a kissing booth

a stall at Tynemouth Market

-stall outside Pets at home,

 

We will be looking for volunteers to help out at these events so if interested please email,
